Letter from George Morgan to Lewis Morris:Deputations of Indians will meet him at Pittsburgh



Pittsburgh, May 22, 1776.

DEAR SIR: I had the pleasure to write to you by Mr˙ Boreman, the 17th instant, to which I refer you for intelligence relative to Indian affairs. Since then nothing new has occurred, except the enclosed messages
from the Shawnese, which be pleased to deliver to the Commissioners; and as I expect four of the Shawnee Chiefs here by the 10th or 15th of June at farthest, and as many of the Delawares, with several of the Six Nations, if the treaty at Niagara is over, permit me to beg you will hasten Mr˙ Boreman back by that time.

The gentleman by whom this goes as far as Connecocheague, is on horseback, waiting for it. Please to send Mrs˙ Morgan word of my being well, and give my love to all Mr˙ Lawrence' s family.

I am, with respect, dear sir, your most obedient servant,


To Lewis Morris, Esq˙, in Congress.

P˙ S. When you write to me, be pleased to mention the dates of the letters you receive from me.
