Abstract:

Correspondence to Denny as Captain of the detachment for Presque Isle, with Gov. Thomas Mifflin of Pennsylvania's instructions for laying out a town at Presque Isle (Mich.). The letter directed Denny to work from a map, watch the movement of the Indians, and work with Gen. John Wilkins, Jr., [his brother-in-law] for safety reasons. The letter is signed A.I. Dallas, Secretary, Secretary's Office, Philadelphia [Pa.]. In reality, the laying out of the town was a cover for the primary mission, which was to prevent members of the Six Nations from joining with the Miami Indians against Gen. Anthony Wayne, to drive colonists out of the area and defeat the Americans.
