v1:775

EXTRACT OF A LETTER FROM TICONDEROGA, DATED AUGUST 5, 1776.

I came over here from Royalton to conduct a Canadian from St˙ Fran├žois to Head Quarters. He assures me that the Indians in general have resolved not to join in the war. Things here begin to wear a different face. The greatest harmony reigns among the General Officers. Order is taking place in the Army, and the men are in high spirits. Great numbers are coming in from New England to Skenesborough. It is reported that General Carleton has used the Canadians who favoured us very barbarously, which has provoked them very much. Some deserters are come over, and some of the foreign troops are said to be desirous of deserting.
