May it please your Excellency

Since my last of March the 6th Col. Moore with the forces under him, have taken and killed 800 at least in the Tuscarora Fort and it seems, hath had as hard an engagement as ever was amongst Indians, since the settling of the English. We have killed and wounded in this expedition 165, whites and Indians.
