DESCRIPTION

[Sheet 10].

Manuscript notation reads: "Virginia - We know very well it hath often been said by the Virginians, that the great king of England, and the people of that colony, conquered the Indians who lived there, but it is not true. We will allow they have conquered the Sachdagughroonaw, and drove back the Tuscarroraws, and that they have, on that account, a Right to some Part of Virginia; but as to waht lies beyond the mountains, we conquered the nations residing there, and that Land, if the Virginians ever get a good Right to it, it must be by us...Speech of Tachanoontia, a chief of the six nations, at Lancaster in 1744, see Colden Histy. p 112."
