Document Information
Date June 8, 1792
Author Name Daniel Britt (primary) Location: Pittsburgh
Recipient Name Joseph Howell (primary) Location: War Department
Summary Britt arrived in Pittsburgh in good order and and will proceed on to Fort Franklin to settle with Capt. Cass and the Indians. Lt. Jeffers' party of Rangers will escort him there and he has waited for them since the woods are lined with hostile Indians. Jeffers made a final stroke at them the previous week as indicated in the papers at Pittsburgh. Howell should look at the subsistence roll of 1790 and inform Britt of Dr. Carmichael's subsistence at the first opportunity. He shall have to remain at Pittsburgh until some troops descend the Ohio since the water is currently very low. He extends his compliments to General Harmar and the lads in the War Office.
