Description
Has received from Capt. Orme the particulars of the fatal action near the French fort, and is shocked at the death and distress of so many officers and the behavior of the men; has summoned the Assembly to meet this day, and hopes they may act for the public safety; if the Provinces will not act together something must be done in a narrower sphere; congratulates Gov. Sharpe on the large subscription in Maryland; supposes the same measures will be taken in Pennsylvania.
