Summary Quotes a recent letter from General Pinckney reporting that the Creek Indians are reneging on their promise in the Treaty of Coleraine to allow the running of the boundary line between the U.S. and Spanish Florida. Pinckney believes the commotion among the Indians to be the work of a French officer in the Spanish service. Discusses the possibility of altercations with the Creeks. Forwards additional correspondence from Pinckney, believing that his preparations are proper, but will probably not be necessary.
