Letter from Pittsburgh


Extract of a Letter received at WILLIAMSBURG, dated PITTSBURG, MARCH 26, 1774. "You may depend that no disturbances have happened with the Indians on the Ohio this winter, and that more is to be dreaded from the animosities subsisting between the settlers from Pennsylvania and Virginia than those barbarians. Governour Penn has sent up a Proclamation, strictly enjoining all Magistrates and Sheriffs to seize upon any twelve men that shall be found together, for the space of an hour, after being told to disperse. Doctor Conolly is relieved from his confinement, and has lately been qualified in Augusta Court as a Magistrate. He is daily expected to return, and will not let any insult pass that may be offered to the authority reposed in him by Lord Dunmore."
