Mr Boone & Mr Beresford attending with Mr Godin and another Gentleman lately come from Carolina Mr Boone acquainted the Board that he was ordered by the Assembly of Carolina to return their Lordships thanks for their endeavours to put that Province under the immediate protection of the Crown, And being asked how the Indian war stood there at present, they said it was not yet over nor had they heard that any advice was arrived at Carolina of assistance by means of Brigadier Hunter from the Indians at New York That in their opinion that war could not be put an end to by Indians only without the assistance of white men—But it being observed to them that the Province of Carolina had not comply'd with their engagements to Virginia for the assistance they have had from that Colony, Mr Boone said that their first Contract became impracticable but that the Province of Carolina had allowed fifty shillings a head per month in lieu of each Negro woman they were to furnish and that he did not doubt but the difference between those Colonies would be soon accommodated.
