1758, April 10, Fort Loudoun
The following data is extracted from Letterbooks of William Henry Lyttleton 1756-1760.
Lieut. Col. Honorth arrived here the 5th instant and deliver’d me a Letter from your Excellency. I am afraid he sha’nt carry but few Indians with him from these Towns, for great Many are gone Towards the Frence Fort, or to the North.
On the 3rd instant a Gang of 21 Indians from Satico, (who went away from the Fort, the 9th ultimate) arrived here, they brought with them two Scalps, they did Stay Some time, and seeing no Presents, they went away dissatisfied. I have enquired since of a Man that has been with them at Satico if he had heard, what nation those Scalps were of, and he told me that he was afraid, they were Creeks, for it was on their hunting ground, that they had killed them. I am
and Most Obedient Servant
