Written by

A long and interesting letter, detailing the results of a military expedi tion against the Western Indians, announcing that it has terminatel in

the Disgrace I foretold in my letter dated the 1st of last May." "The late Campaign has increased the Difficulties in our Way to Peace by multiplying our Enemies, yet I say an honourable Peace is practicable if immediately attended to, without further effusion of Blood. I wish

such measures may be adopted as will produce it. Should we however, persist in aiming to chastise the Nations for defending their Lands, Lives & Liberties, the more absurdly we pursue the War, the more consistent will be our Conduct: and if they are united in their Councils, all our Efforts in an unjust War will be vain."
