Abstract:

Dec. 27, 1757, letter from Maj. Gen. James Abercromby in Albany, to Sir William Johnson, colonel and sole agent to the Six Nations, regarding the threatened invasion of Schoharie, N.Y., by the enemy, including "Onoghquaga" and "Schohary" Indians.

Abercromby, who had been visited by a delegation from Schoharie, responded to their requests for aid by ordering two companies to the settlement, requiring Johnson to send an Indian officer to manage the Indians, and instructing him regarding the construction of defenses and possession of the fort.
