Express from Lord Dunmore arrived at Williamsburg


Williamsburg, Friday, October 14, 1774.

This day an Express arrived from his Excellency the Governour, who has sent copies of several Speeches that


passed between him and the Chiefs of the Six Nations and Delawares; wherein they greatly disapprove of the murders and outrages committed by the Shawanese, and promise to use their best endeavours to bring them to a treaty with his Excellency, when it is hoped a permanent peace will be established, and an end put to an Indian war, so ruinous to the Frontier inhabitants, as well as expensive to the country.
