Letter from John Stuart Indian Agent &c to Lord Dartmouth.

Charles Town So Carolina
28th March 1775.

My Lord,


I beg leave to submit to your Lordship, Copies of letters from Mr Cameron, containing an account of the proceedings of a Mr Henderson from North Carolina, and I have received a letter from Governor Martin of North Carolina upon the same subject, acquainting me that he has issued a Proclamation for apprehending the said Henderson and his associates. In my last I submitted to you the danger which in my opinion will probably attend this abuse if not put a stop to.

I am &c.
