Description
Has come to Albany to attend Sir Charles Hardy, and takes the opportunity of congratulating Johnson on his victory over the French [Battle of Lake George]; the governor sends Johnson one of the French General's [Dieskau's] letters doing justice to Johnson's civilities, by it he would see that the Caghnawagas were not altogether in the power of the French; the Governor was sensible of Johnson's influence with Indians and would do him justice at home; sends his personal compliments to Captains [William] Eyre and [Peter?] Wraxall.
