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

Sir

Your Excellency’s

Most humble
and Most Obedient Servant
