Description
He learned from an Oneida chief named Nickas that the Senecas have declared war against the English; that a number of inhabitants were tomahawked while removing from the Ohio; and that there was a congress of Indians at the Onondago Castle; there had been an agreement between the Indians and Gen. Shirley that the forts built in their territory should be demolished at the end of the war with the French; the meeting determined that three Onondago chiefs should go down to ask leave to go to England and lay this grievance before the King; if leave should not be granted, all the nations will declare war; a great number of Indians are assembling at Otaranie; they are to come this way and destroy all who will not join against the English.
