Chiefs of the Six Nations


New-York, March 30, 1775.

The chiefs of the Six Nations, who, during the course of the winter, held several Congresses with Colonel Guy Johnson, the Superintendent, are, we hear, at present with him in consultation respecting the conduct of the several tribes to the Southward, and the steps to be further taken for preventing future quarrels in that quarter; to which end it is said they propose to use every means in their power for collecting their scattered people from amongst the several Nations, and fixing them in a place where they will be more immediately under the direction of their proper confederacy. And we are likewise informed that Colonel Johnson, who was greatly indisposed through cold he caught attending on one of the conferences, is now much better.
