Description
Had received his letter with the commissions which are correct, as it was that company that was Conin's formerly that he has now divided, and Nicholas Hanson's, now Vroman's, was divided the year before; the Indians of Canojoharie had sent him a message offering him a large tract of land on the Mohawk river, and desiring that a deed of gift might be drawn, which he at first declined, but it was subsequently done; this includes about 40,000 acres; writes of other legal matters; had written to Mr. Alexander Colden for a survey of the lands patented from Albany to Fort Stanwix; asks for an opinion about the troop of Albany.
