Letters from Fort Pitt


Williamsburg, June 23, 1774.

By letters from Fort Pitt, (since rebuilt, called Fort Dunmore,) of the 7th instant, there is advice that two days before a family on the west side of the Monongahela, consisting of a man, woman, and six children, were killed and scalped by a party of Indians, with many circumstances of cruelty; and that a man has been killed near Graw Creek, on the Ohio. The day following another man was killed on the Monongahela by the Indians.
