Governor Dobbs to Secretary Lord Egremont

15 July 1763.

My Lord,

I have the honor of Your Lordship's letter of the 26th March on the 8th inst. with His Majesty's commands to proclaim our glorious Peace which has secured to us so great an Empire upon this Continent which I have accordingly done I before acknowledged the receipt of Your Lordship's letter about the Indian Congress which is appointed at Augusta on the 15th of October to which Capt. Stewart has invited the Indians but I dont hear that the presents are yet arrived at Charles Town I propose God willing to attend it as it appears still more necessary by the breaking out of the Indians to the Northward.

I am with great respect My Lord &c
