Description
There is reason to believe that there are Indians near these settlements; one was seen near Peter Dyarely's, eight appeared before the fort at the Sweet Springs, and Absalom Looney discovered six; they are probably either scouts sent to obtain intelligence, or they may be sent by the large party that got a drubbing, in order to make alarms and so cover the retreat; he would be glad to learn that the men from Bedford had arrived; asks Fleming to send him at least three or four men, as his sons will be away, Thomas to attend as a commissioner at the court-house, and Andrew to go to Mr. Madison's to be married.
