Sir

two Days ago j recived you Excellency’s Letter of the 28th of August, with another for Old Hop. Accordingly yesterday j went to Chotee and delivered it to him he told me, he was very glad to hear from you, and desired me to acquaint your Excellency that you Might depend on him, and that he would do always his best Endeavours, to keep Peace & Harmony between the English, & his People, that he was very Sorry, for what had happened but he could not help it. As Mr. Beamer’s Son was with me, he gave him a String of White Wampum to deliver to the jndians of the lower Towns, and desired him to tell them, that as he had the Promises of all the Upper Towns, to not molest the English, but to be united together, he expected that they would do the Same, and if any Thing happened to them, it Should be their own fault, for said he, the English are our Brothers & friends; he has sent an other String of white Wampum, to the Middle Settlements, with a Strong Talk. He and j lives in very good understanding together, he comes to see me very often, and tells me j am his best friend. J hope you Tecellency has recived the Letter that j sent by Mr. Martin, and you may be assured that if any Good Party offers to go to War towards the French Fort, j shall encourage them. The jndians say that the Expresses have lost the way to the Upper Cherokees. J should be infinetly obliged to you Excellency, that if we had any good success to the North _ you would lett us know it, for j begin to thinck, that j am now in an other world.

J am. With great Respect

Sir.

Your Excellency’s

Most obedient
& most humble Servant

Paul Demere
