Albany 5th September 1754
May it Please Your Honour
We Rece:d Yours of the 9th Ultimo and have
Noted the Contents; We Dont Know, But What We Have
Intirely Done Our Duty, from time to time as Commissi=
=oners of Indian Affairs, and Shall Do So as Long as We
Remain In this Post.
What Evir Hendrik Said of us, at the last Treaty With
Your Honour at Albany is Intirely folly, as Appears
By Our Minutes, Which the Mayor and Recorder has Delivered
to you; Which We Expected, Would have Convinced You
of our Conduct, We Assure Your Honour that Hendrick
to this Day, Never Applyed to this Board for any thing.
When he Comes In Town, is Always About Som Land affairs
With Som Body or an Other.
We Also Received this Morning an Other letter Dated the 31th
Ultimo. Concerning the three Belts Which the Anondage Indians
Sent to the Governour of Verginia, they Did Not Say on What
Occasion or for What Purpose the Were Sent.
As to the firing Guns at the Arrival of the french Indian Seachems
When they Laid About a Mile Above Albany, they Sent Word, that
they Would fire three Vollies, and it Wass there upon agreed that
they Should Be Answered By a few [?Great] Guns: Accordingly
Wa Col. Marshall Was Desired By the Majestrates, to fire few
for it is Always Done When our Indians Come to Caneda
Agreable to Yours We Will Send for Mindert Wemple and
Endeavour to Send him With [?Mynderts] Mr. Renselaars Nephew
to the Senecas Contry, and We Will Endeavour to Send an Other
Smith to Anondage Cassel. Inclosed You have All our Minutes
to this Day Which We Would have Sent You Sooner, But on
Account of the Late Disturbance our Clerk Could Not Get them
Done. Since Our Last to You, We Have had Intilligence
from Hosack, that one Samuel Burns is Killed and Scalpt & an Other Man
Wounded, So that there is Only Now But one man Missing, and
Sinckajek totally Burnt, and at Hosack all the Houses, Barns
and Bareks on the East Side of the Creek there, as to Our Trans=
=actions In general, We Beg Leave to Refer You To the Inclosed
Minutes. Last Munday Went from this Town to Hosack
