Summary From the files of Executive, William Urquhart and presumably addressed to Governor Telfair, Twiggs notes an additional reason why his troops did not proceed on in the expedition against Creeks at Oakmulgee. Notes that in addition to lack of provisions, he foresaw the likelihood that troops would have killed some of Cusseta nation hunting in small parties. This would have united friendly towns against his forces and produced evil consequences
