24. October 1711.

The Governor this day acquainted the Council that pursuant to the Resolutions on the 15th instant he had met the Deputys of the Tuscaruro Indians at the Nottoway town, and had made the demands then agreed on; That he found the said Deputys very desirous to continue in peace with Her Majesty's subjects as well of this Government as of Carolina, and well enough inclined to enter into a war with the Indians concerned in the late Massacre, upon promise of a reward of six blankets for the head of each man of the said Indians killed by the Tuscaruros, and the usual price of slaves for each woman and Child delivered captives, but that they desired time till the 20th of the next month to consult with their respective towns and had promised to come to Williamsburgh against that time or within five days thereafter with a final Answer both as to their entring into the said War and their delivering Hostages for their Fidelity.
