Description
Has had some of the Esopus Indians with him and encloses their declaration; they say Col. Class copied their papers; suggests asking Class for copies as he did not expect to find originals; Mr. Shuckburgh was there and confirmed Swart's declaration; expected that the Assembly would grant the money for finishing the survey; the corporation [of Albany] had dropped their petition for a new charter as Col. Rensselaer and others threatened caveats on account of ferries; great discontent and confusion at home, wishes it were well ended.
