Abstract:

September 15, 1786, letter to Brig. Gen. Elijah Clarke, regarding military preparations in anticipation of trouble with the Creeks.

Telfair discusses the raising of troops in Wilkes and Burke counties, and the Augusta area; the procurement of arms and ammunition; the readiness of commissioners to meet with the Creek Nation; and the necessity of "spies to watch every movement of the Creeks." Enclosures, including letters from Timothy Barnard, a talk from Alexander McGillivray, and quartermaster's and commissioners' orders, are lacking.
