Description
He is concerned by the proceedings of the Pennsylvania Assembly; urges the importance of the expedition to the Ohio; had he been assisted, the Colonies might by one effort have overcome the machinations of France; his plan is to take possession of the land and build two forts, and if opposed, to repel force by force; the Virginia troops have marched to the number of 350; 300 are on the march from North Carolina, and he expects two companies from New York and one from South Carolina; Pennsylvania ought at least to grant money; South Carolina voted £100,000; the French are reported to have 300 men at their fort, and they expect 400 more from the Mississippi.
