Description
Mohawk Indians report to him that eight or ten Onagungue Indians were on the watch near his town; also another party in the neighborhood of Albany; has sent some of his own people to intercept them; has heard of no trouble as yet, but is in momentary dread of it; fears the effect upon the settlers, and hopes a vigorous policy will be adopted by the Colony against the hostile Indians. In a post script he speaks of information recently received from the interpreter at German Flats of large reenforcements from the Iroquois and the Indians of the south-west.
