Abstract:

This letter deals with Washington's opinions, plans and orders concerning the fighting between the Americans and the Indians who were under the influence of the British. Washington expresses his strong approval of the expeditions against the Seneca and Muncy Nations by both Brodhead and General Sullivan in which Seneca towns and crops were laid waste and Indian possessions were plundered.
