In Committee, May

15. 1775.

At a meeting of the Committee for the County Borough of Chester, May 15, 1775, Anthony Wayne, chair, tiie following Resolves were made, viz:

of Chester, at the
Escjuire, in the

WherciLs, The British Tarliament, insteail of hearing our just complaints or showing the least regard to tiie dutiful ;lud loyal Petition of the late Continental Congress in behalf of America, have proceeded to fresh acts of tyranny and oppression, whicli. added to an Address of both Lords and Commons to His Majesty, declaring the inhabitants of the Province of Massachusetts Bay to be in a state of open rebellion, and several of the other Colonies encouragers of the same, have induced the soldiery under the command of General Gage, at Boston, to commence a civil war, by wantonly firing upon and murdering a number of the inhabitants of that Province.

whereas. The said Address militates equally against all the inhabitants of the other Colonies, who have the virtue to refuse obedience to laws and measures destructive to the best rights and liberties of America, which, if suffered to take effect, must inevitably reduce these Colonies to a state of abject slavery, from which, in all probability, no human efforts would ever be able to rescue them, and although we will not yield to any of our fellow-subjects in point

And

of duty

and loyalty to our most gracious Sovereign, yet we cannot be so far negligent of our own happiness as totally to neglect providing for our common safety. Therefore, resolved uiKmiiuoin^Iy, 1st. That it is the indispensable duty of all freemen of this County immediately to form and enter into Associations for the purpose of learning the military art. and
that they provide themselves with proper

Arms and Ammunition,

duty and exi)erience, your petitioners, therefore, humbly pray tl)at the Association may be extended to tlie age of sixty. And as the tax upon the non-Associators is considered an equivalent for personal services, and the Associators liave no compensation for their arms and accoutrements, not to mention the dangers tliey will be exposed to when called into actual service, your petitioners pray tliat an additional tax be laid upon the estates of nonAssociators proportionate to the expenses of the Associators, necessarily incurred for the general defence of property. And, as, by marching whole battalions, or companies of Militia, large tracts of country will be left destitute of men, except those

be better to direct the Colonels to draft from tlieir battalions such number as sliall, from time to time, be requisite, tliereby affording an opportunity for those whose circumstances will not always admit their going, to get volunteers in their stead, and, at the same time,
leaving sufficient force in every part of

BERKS COUNTY EESOLVES,

1774.

Atameetingof a very respectable body of freeholders and others, inhabitants of the county of Berks, at Reading, tlie 2a of July, 1774, Edward Biddle, Esq., iii the chair. This assembly, taking into their very serious consideration the present critic il situation of Ainsrican affairs, do unanimously resolve as follows, viz
1. That tlie inliabitants of this county do owe, and will pay due allegiance to our rightful Sovereign, King George the Tiiird. 2. That the powers claimed, and now attempted to be put into execution by tlie British Parliament, are fundamentally wrong and cannot be admitted witiiout the utter destruction of tiie liberties of

America.
3. That the Boston Port Bill is unjust and tyrannical in the extreme, and that the measures pursued against Boston are intended to operate equally against the rights and liberties of the other col-

onies.
4. That tills assembly doth concur in opinion with their respective brethren of Philadelphia, that there is an absolute necessity for an immediate congress of the deputies of the several colonies in order to deliberate upon and pursue such measures as may radically

unhappy disturbances, and settle with precision the rights and liberties of America. 5. Tiiat the inhabitants of this county, confiding in the prudence and ability of the deputies intended to be chosen for the general congress, will cheerfully submit to any measures whicii may be found by the said congress best adai)ted for the restoration of iiarheal our present

mony between the motlier-country and the colonies, and for the security and lirm establisiiment of the riglits of America. 6. That as the people of Boston are now suffering iu the grand ami common cause of American liberty;
liesolveil, That it is the duty of all inhabitants to contribute to the sup|)ort of the said sufferers, and that the committee hereafter named do open subscriptions for tlieir relief. And further, that the

said committee do lay out tlie ainouiit of such subscription in purchasing flour and other provisions, to be sent by them to our suffering bretiiren.

succession of recruiting officers from different counties in this province. Our zeal for the cause of American liberty has hitherto prevented our taking any steps to hinder tlie raising of men for its service, but finding the evil increasing so fast ui)on us as almost to threaten the depopulation of the county, we cannot help appealing the to the wisdom and justice of your Committee to know whether

Whether at a time when we are uncertain of peace witli tiie Indians (well knowing that our enemies are tampering with them) and a
claim is set up to the greatest part of this province by a neighboring colony wiio have their hostile abettors at our very breasts, as well as their emissaries amongst us, is it prudent to drain an infant
frontier county of its strengtli of

men ? and wliether the safety of the interior parts of the province would not be better secured by adding strength to the frontiers ? Whether our Hon. Assembly, by disposing of commissions to gentlemen in different counties to raise companies which are to form the number of battalions tliought necessary for the defence of tlie province, did not intend that the
respective captains should raise their companies where tliey [were]

appointed V and not distress our county by taking from it all the men necessary for the business of agriculture, as well as the defence of the same ? From our knowledge of the state of this county, we make free to give our opinion of what would be most for its advantage, as well as that of the province, (between which we hope there never will be a difference:) and first are to inform you [of] the jtoverty of the people, many of whom came bare and naked here, being plundered by a banditti who call themselves Yankies, and those who brought some property with them from the necessary delay of cultivating a wilderness before they could have any produce to live upon, together with the necessity of still continuing the closest application to labor and industry for their support, renders it morally imi)robable that a well disciplined militia can be establisliedhere, as the distance which some men are obliged to go to muster is tlie loss of two days to tliem, which, not being paid for, they will not, nor indeed can they so often attend as is necessary to complete them even in the manual exercise. We would recommend that two or more companies be raised and put in pay for the use of the province, to be ready to march when and where the service may require them, and when not wanted for the service of tlie public at any particular place, to be stationed in this county in order to be near and defend our frontier, sliould they be attacked by our enemies of any denomination, tiie good effect of whicli we imagine would be considerable, as tliough tiiey may be too few to rei)el, they may stop the progress of an enemy until the militia could be raised to assist them. Should this proposal appear eligible, jHease to inform us thereof, and we will recommend such

which amendments, the liberties of the Privates of the Association appear to be, in a great measure, taken away. " First. The time of keeping the Associators out on actual service is no where limited, either in the Rules or Articles of Associawhich, your Petitioners apprehend, puts them in a worse tion situation tlian the inlisted Troops. We submit it to the wisdom of the honourable House whether two or three months are not sufli:

The Articles, as they now stand, establish all the Association during life, or until otherwise removed by resignation, i)romotion. or broken by the sentence of a General Court of Associators. We would pray the honourable House to reconsider this matter, and see if it is not more agreeable to the rights of freemen and the Constitution of this Province, tiiat all Military Olbcers, not exceeding the rank of a Colonel of a Battalion, should be voted in by ballot annually, in the same manner as Members of tlie Assembly, Sheriffs, and other civil Ollicers tiie Field-Ollicers, Standaid-bearer, and Adjutant, by the Battalion at large and the Officers of a Troop or Company by the Troop or

Company.
" Your petitioners are of opinion that Oflicers voted in in this liable to disgrace upon the promotion of others in their room, as their going out of otlice miglit not be for any bad conduct alleged against them, but in order to serve others equally worthy of notice; for annual election is so essentially necessary to the liberty of freemen, that your Petitioners hoi)e the honourable House will be careful not to deprive their con-

Your Petitioners humbly conceive that the llegimenand General Courts of Associators should consist of an equal number of Otlicers and Court-Associators, (one of the said oflicers to be President,) as we can see no reason why there .should be a superior number of officers in the said Courts because officers and l)rivates of tlie Association, being engaged in the same cause, ought to have the same mode of trial, be the offence what it will. "Fourthly. Tlie thirty-first article of Association enjoins the Associators to be subject to all Rules and Articles already made by the honourable Continental Congress for the governmeut of the Continental Troops when called by tlie Assembly, or the Committee of Safety in recess of Assembly, into actual service. Your Petitioners pray that the honourable House would please to

amend

said article by allowing the Associators to be tried for all

offences and crimes, of which they

may

be guilty, as mentioned in

the said Rules and Articles when on actual service, in the same way as is proposed above, viz by an equal number of their own oflicers and court-associators and, where the i)unishment directed

;

by said rules and articles is to be whipping, and the crime not made felony by the civil law, that the delinquent shall have it in his power to evade such whipi)ing by luiying a certain fine— such as the wisdom of the honourable House shall point out, and in such
time as shall be thought proper after conviction.

This indulgence,

your Petitioners apprehend, will not be attended with any bad consequences to the Army, as the Associators are on a different footing from the Continental Troops, and may, through inadvertency or ignorance, be guilty of an offence that would suV)ject tliem to a punishment which would be a lasting stain to them and their family, more especially if they have been of any repute at home. " Lastly. Your Petitioners pray the honourable House to consider tlie inequality of fines respecting Non-Associators tlie grievances whereof are so great and many, that it would be' giving you too much trouble to enumerate them, as we are well assured they are fully laid before the lionourable House in a Petition from the Committee of Privates of tlie City and Suburbs of Philadelpliia, and perhaps, by other Committees. " Your Petitioners most humbly pray the honourable House to take these matters into their most serious consideration, and grant the amendments herein proposed, or such redress of the grievances we complain of, as to their wisdom shall appear right. And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will pray.

Thedivisions or battalions were formed and the seniority of eacii battalion fixed on by a unanimous vote the mode fallen on was that each battalion should take rank according to the time of a majority of its companies having associated—this gave universal satisfaction. We. wlio now address you, are members of one or another of tiie Battalions, and are very sensible that if seniority were now to be fixed by lot, it would tend to create confusion and injure the common cause, therefore, hope that commissions may be granted agreeable to the regulations of the committee and oflicers.

One of these battalions haS but five companies, yet

they are so very large tliat a single company may act as a grand division until they can be divided with satisfaction and conveniency to the inhabitants, in which the field officers, when commissioned, can very much assist. The particular townships of each battalion are to be regarded. The persons appointed for officers are generally agreeable to the people. We have been given to understand that Capt. James Dill, the officers of his comjiany, and some others, are dissatisfied with the choice of Matthew Dill. Esq., for Colonel of the Fifth Battalion, that they were desirous of a new election and had written to you for that purpose. As to this, we can inform you, that without any confusion or disputation, and with the greatest fairness, Matthew Dill, Esq., was chosen Colonel of that division. A new election would answer no good purpose, but would tend to encourage faction, which we happily avoided in this County. 'AVe also enclose you a list of the officers' names in the

Minute men

of this

County, raised

in

pursuance of the direction of

the Assembly of this province, and the recommendation of the Continental Congress. Tiiese are the officers and men raised by them— the persons that are ready to be first called forth from this County for the service of the Common Cause. We are also of opinion that in the country it will not be so convenient to cast lots for wiiole companies that are to march in case of a call, as the discipline of all the comi)anies are not alike; many have not the same advantages or opportunities to be taught, and a number in every company could not go, so that lot might often fall on companies that the community could have no reliance on we therefore apprehend it will do better to fix on individuals that are to act in the first instance as Minute men. We have hitherto been unanimous and hoi)e that tiie conduct of this County will receive your countenance and apjnobation. There are nearly 100 persons asso;

ciated in

concerning their

of Yorl<, iield this day. Tlie committee taking into consideration the state of the country, are of opinion tiiat several companies, beside tiie two already ordered, might be immediately raised in this county for the Continental aervice, provided they were officered in this county. That,

considering the zeal and patriotic spirit of tlie people, we thi!!k tluit in the late appointment of officers in the troops to be raised in Tlierefore, this province, tliis county has not had its proportion. Jiesolved, That the chairman of this committee do write a letter to the delegates of this !)roviiice in Congress inclosing tiiis resolution, to be laid before tiie Congress, and expressing the will, ingness of this county to exert themselves to tiie utmost in defence of the Common Cause, witii the request that if any more troops are soon necessary to be raised in this province in tiie Continental service, that this county be honored with the officering six
ciimpanies, and
as

recommending tiie Field Officers of tlie battalion, we make no doubt but the greater part of the men for the companies might be raised in York County. Eesolvrd, That a letter be written by the Ciiairman to the C'ommittee of Safety, requesting their weight and concurrence with

Whereuiwi he, the said Robert Owings, expressing his hearty and unfeigned sorrow for his said conduct, agreed further to signify his entire disapprobation thereof, by signing the underwritten declaration, which was voted satisfactory.

diately assembled for that purpose, tlie letters, votes ings of the City and liberties of tlie capital. The joy

and proceedwe felt upon

may be more easily conceived than exTowards evening, a certain Charles Stedman, attorneyat-law. came into town, and oi)ened to his host his having certain papers tending to the contirmation of the powers of Government in
pressed.

the iiands of the present Assembly. This good citizen lost no time till he made the Committee acquainted with the important discovery orders were thereupon issued forthwith for securing Mr.
;

Stedman's i)ortmanteau, and keeping an eye on his person, till he might be examined. On our Secretary's application, lie readily confessed his having three copies of the Remonstrance, issued by the i)arty too notoriously the enemies of the rights of freemen to find much countenance here. These copies he delivered to the Secretary, and then, as well as upon his examination, declared that he found them at his fatlier's house, in Pliiladelphia, and was there told tiiey had been left by Mr. Andrew Robinson, with a verbal request to carry them to William Maclay, Esquire, at Sunbury. Nothing furtiier apjiearing amongst the i)ackages of Mr. Stedman, he was suffered to pass, after he had regained, opened, and read a letter he had been seen conveying to one of the prisoner's servants, which only discovered his great affection for the worthy family of Doctor Kearsley, as he was pleased to style them, and some otlier
wortliies of the

same

jiolitical comjjlexioii.

Mr. Stedman's departure from town was attended with such circumstances as caused two young men, who came with another large packet of these treasonable papers, directed to ^Messrs. Johnston & Lukens here, to decamp with precipitation. These carriers told tlie landlord tliey iuid received their charge from Doctor Smith and Phineas Bond, at Lancaster. Our Committee being early assembled, Messrs. Lukens A: Johnston sliowed an anonymous letter, directed to them both, requesting them to forward tlie letters and remonstrances without loss of time, and tlie Evening Posts, and to recjiiest their dispatch in procuring the signing of those pajiers in their several Districts. On the delivery of the bundle to tiie Committee, it ap|)eared filled with remonstrances and Evening Posts, and sundry sealed letters, one of
whicli, directed to Henry Wolfe, of Yorktowii, was opened by his consent and read, a copy of which is enclosed. By this discovery, the Committee judged it proper to retain all tlie other letters till Friday next, wiieii a meeting of the County Committee is warned to take all these important matters into consideration. You may de])eiid upon the event of this meeting to be favourable to tlie cause of liberty, as the sense of the town militia was taken yesterday, and 1 am happy in being able to assure you

Capt.

Michael Walter, upon his examination declared, that Frederick
that
;

Reeger told liim that if Capt. Arndt came into Easton he siiould not go out as lie came in that for all he said, Frederick was an old Man, he would be revenged on him, and that the Capt" had soldhis Com'y. Elijali Crawford, upon his examination declared, tliat he being one of Capt. Arndt's Comp'y, was with liim all the time duritig the Battle on Long Island, and cannot say that the Capt. hid himself in any wise during the Engagement or in any manner deserted liis Comp'y, but that on the contrary that by his good conduct saved above twenty of his Comp'y, who w-ould have eitlier been killed or
;

taken prisoners. John Lyle. being examined, declared, that he was in company with Capt. Arndt in Fort Washington tlie day before tlie Battle that wliile in there, and tiiat he cros'd the Nortii River with him the Fort, lie did not hear it mentioned that tliey expected an Engagement and that the said Lyle was sure, if it iiad been talked of lie would have heard it, he having had several acquaintances

Upon hearing the above Evidences it appears that the several charges laid against Capt.

[The Records of the "Committee of Inspection " for the County Westmoreland are not to our knowledge in existence, having probably been destroyed in the Burning of Ilannastown, in July, 1782. These patriotic Resolves, liowever, have been preserved owing to the fact that they appeared in the Philadelphia newsof

papers of the day, as the sentiment of the brave and frontiersmen in Western Pennsylvania.]

undaunted

At a general meeting of the inhabitants of the County of W^estmoreland, held at Ilaiuia's Town the IGth day of May, 1775, for taking into consideration tiie very alarming situation of this Country, occasioned by the dispute with Great JBritain Besoh'cd unaniinously. That tlie Parliament of Great Britain, by
:

several late Acts, liave declared the inhabitants of the Massachusetts-Bay to be in rebellion, and tlie Ministry, by endeavoring iu enforce those Acts, have attempted to reduce tlie said inhabitants to a more wretched state of slavery than ever before existed in any state or country. Not content with violating their constitutional

and cliartered privileges, they would strip them of the rights of humanity, exposing lives to the wanton and unpunishable sport of a licentious soldiery, and depriving them of the very means of subsistence.

liesohed unanimously, That there is no reason to doubt but the of tyranny and oppression will (Should it meet with success in the Massachusetts-Bay) be extended to every other part of America it is therefore become the indispensible duty of every

same system
;

American, of every man who has any publick virtue or love for his Country, or any compassion for posterity, by every means which God has put in his power, to resist and oppose the execution of it that for us we will be ready to oppose it with our lives and fortunes.
:

And

the better to enable us to accomplish

it,

we

will

immediately

form ourselves into a military body, to consist of companies to be made up out of the several Townships under the following Association, which is declared to be the Association of Westmoreland
County.

THE EXPEDITION.

[Tlie following narratives of two of tlie survivors of Crawford's Expedition Co Sandusky were given to the public sliortly after the ret urn of the narrators. It is deemed perfectly proper to reproduce them in connection with the preceding. That of Dr. Knight was written by himself that of Slover as related by him was taken down by II. Brackenridge.]
,

NARRATIVE OF

DR. KNIGHT.

About the latter end of the montli of March or the beginning of April, of the present year (17S2), the western Indians began to make incursions upon the frontiers of Oiiio and Washington, Youghiogany and Westmoreland counties, which has been their constant practice ever since the commencement of the present war between the United States and Great Britain. In consequence of these predatory invasions, tiie principal officers of the above mentioned counties, namely Colonels Williamson and Marshall, tried every method in their power to set on foot an expedition against the Wyandot towns, wliich tiiey could effect no otlier way than by giving all possible encouragement to volunteers.
:

was as follows: Every man furnishing liimself with a horse, a gun, and one month's provisions, should be exempt from two tours of militia duty. Likewise, that every one who had been plundered by the Indians, should, if the plunder could be found at their towns, have it again, proving it to be his property, and all horses lost on the expedition by unavoidal)le accident were to be replaced by horses taken iu the enemv's country.
Tlie plan proi)osed

The tiiDe appointed for tlie reiulezvous, or the general incetiiiK of the volunteers, was fixed to be on the :0th of May, and tlie place, the old Minpo town, on tlie west side of the river Ohio, aUint forty miles below Fort Pitt, by luiul and I think about seventv-tive by water.
;

Col. Crawford was solicited by tlie peneral voice of tliese western counties and districts to connnand tiie expedition. Ileaccordinply set out as a volunteer, and came to Fort Pitt two days ln'fore tlie time aiipointed for tlie assembliii<; of the men. As tiiere was no

Surgeon yet appointed to go with the expedition. Col. Crawford begged the favor of Gen. Irvine to permit me to accompany him, (my consent having been jireviously asked,) to which the General agreed, provided Col. Gibson did not object. Having obtained permission of the Col.. 1 left Fort Pitt on Tuesday, May 1st, and the next day about one in tlie afternoon, arriveil at the Mingo bottom. The volunteers had not all crossed the river until Fritlav morning, tlie 24tli. they then distributed tliemselves into eigliteen companies, choosing their captains by vote. There were chosen also, one Col. Commandant, four field and one brigadier Major. There

were four hundred and sixty-five that voted. We began our march on Saturday, May 2oth, making almost a due "West course, and on the fourth day reach the old Moravian town, upon the river Muskingum, about 6U miles from the river Ohio. Some of the men having lost their horses'on tlie nigiit preceding, returned home. Tiiuisday, the 2Stli, in the evening, Major Brinton and (Japtain Bane, went some distance from camp to reconnoitre: having gone about one-quarter of a mile they saw two Indians, upon whom they fired, and then retreated to camp. This was the first place in which we were discovered, as we understood afterwards. On Thursday, tlie 4tli of June, which was tlie eleventh day of our marcii, about one o'clock we came to the sjtot where the town of Sandusky formerly stood the inhabitants had moved IS miles lower down the creek nearer the lower Sandusky; but as neither our guides or any who were with us liad known any thing of their removal, we began to conjecture there were no Indian towns nearer than the lower Sandusky, which was at least forty miles
;

distant.

However, after refre.shing our horses we advanced in searcli of some of their settlements, but had scarcely got the distance of three or four miles from the old town when a number of our men exjires.sed tlieir desire to return, some of them alleging tliat they had

Just as the council decided, an express returned from tlie above mentioned party of light horse witli intelligence tliatthey had been about three miles in front, and had seen a large -body of Indians running towards them. In a short time we saw the rest of the light horse, who joined us, and having gone one mile f urtiier, met a number of Indians who had partly got possession of a piece of woods before us. wliilst we were in the plains but our men alighting from their horses and rushing into the woods, soon obliged them to abandon tliat place. The enemy being by this time reinforced, flanked to the right, and part of tliem coming in nearer, quickly made the action more

serious. The fuiiig continued very warm on botii sides from four o'clock until the dusk of the evening, each party maintaining their ground. Next morning, about six o'clock, their guns were discharged, at the distance of two or three hundred yards, which con-

After dark the oflicers went on the out-posts and brought in all the men as expeditiously as they could. Just as the troops were about to form, several guns were fired by the enemy, upon whicli some of our men spoke out and said our intention was discovered l)y the Indians who were firing alarm guns. Upon which some in front hurried off and the rest immediately followed, leaving tiie seven men tliat were dangerously wounded, some of whom however got ofT on horseback, by means of some good friends, who waited for, and assisted them. We had not got a quarter of a mile from tlie field of action when I heard Col. Crawford calling for his son, John Crawford, iiis sonin-law.

He then exclaiuud such an irregular manner^ and leaving' some of the wounded behind, contrary to his orders. Presently there came two men ridinjx iifter us, one of them an oM man, the other a lad. We enquired if they had seen any of the al)ove persons y They answered they had not. 15y this time there was very hot liriiifj before us, and as w.-jnilirt-d. near where our main body must have been. Our conr.se was th.-ii nearly Southwest, but chanf,nnff it, we went nortii about two miles, the two men remaining in company with us. Judging ourselves to be now out of the enemy's lines, we took a due East course, taking can- to keep at the distance of fifteen or twenty yards ap;ut, and directing ourselves by the North star. The old man often lagged behind, and when this was the case, never failed to call for us to halt for him. When we were near the Sandusky creek he fell one hundred yards behind, and bawled cut, as usual, for us to halt. Wiiile we were i)reparing to reprimand him for making a noise, I lieard an Indian hallo, as I thoU;,'ht, one hundred and tifty yards from the aian, and partly behind him. After this we did not hear the man call aixain, neitlier did he ever ci)me ui) to us any more. It was now past midnight, and about day. break Col. Crawford's and the young man's horses gave out, and they left them. We pursued our journey Eastward, and about two o'clock fell in with Capt. Biggs, who had carried Lieut. Ashley from the held of action, who had been dangerously wounded. We then went on about the space of an hour, when a heavy rain coming on, we concluded it was best to encamp, as we were encumbered with the wounded oliicer. We then barked four or live trees, made an encampment and a tire, and remained there all that night. Xext morning we again prosecuted our jcxurney, and having gone about three miles found a deer wliicli had been recently killed. Tiie meat was sliced from the bones and bundled up in tlie skin, with a tomahawk lying by it. We carried all with us, and in advancing about one mile further, espied the smoke of a fire. AVe then gavtthe wounded otlicer into the charge of the young man, directing him to stay behind whilst the Colonel, the Captain and myself walked up as cautiously as we could toward the lire. When Wf came to it, we concluded, from several circumstances, somt- of our people had encam|)ed tlieie the preceding night. We then went about roasting the venison, and when just about to march, observed one of our men coming upon our tracks.

Upon tliis we gave him some bread and roasted venison, proceeded all together on onr journey, and about two o'clock came upon thei)aths by whicli we had gone out. Capt.

the troops farther tiian the plains, whicli we were then considerably past. As the wounded officer rode. Capt. Biggs' horse, I lent the

They were Delaware Indians of the Wingenund tribe. Cai)tain Biggs fired amongst them but did no execution. They then told us to call these peojtle and make them come there, else they would go and kill them, which the Colonel did, but they forgot us and escaped for that time. The Colonel and I were then taken to the Indian camp, which was about half a mile from the place where we were captured. On Sunday evening five Delawares who had posted themselves at some distance further on the road brought back to
camp, where we lay. Captain Biggs' and Lieutenant Ashley's with an Indian scalp which Captain Biggs had taken in the field of action they also brought in Biggs' horse and mine, they told us the other two men got away from them. Monday morning, the tenth of June, we were paraded to march to Sandusky, about thirty-three miles distant; they had eleven prisoners of us and four scalps, the Indians being seventeen in number. Col. Crawford was very desirous to see a certain Simon Girty, who lived with the Indians, and was on this account permitted to go to town the same night, with two warriors to guard him, having orders at the same time to pass by the place where the Col. had turned out his honse, tiiat they might if possible, find liim. The rest of us were taken as far as the old town which was within eight miles of the new. Tuesday morning, the eleventh, Col. Crawford was brought out to us on purpose to be marched in with the other prisoners. I asked the Col. if he had seen Mr. Girty ? He told me he had, and that Girty had promised to do every thing in his power for him. but that the Indianswere very much enraged against the prisoners: particularly Captain Pipe one of the chiefs; he likewise told me that Girty liad informed him that his son-in-law, Col.

As we went alonp we saw four of tiie prisoners lying by the path tomahawked and scalped, some of them were at the distance of half a mile from each other. Wiien we arrived within half a mile of the place where the Col. was executed, we overtook the five prisoners that remained alive; the Indians had caused them to sit down on the ground, as they did also the Col. and me at some distance from them. I was there given in charge to an Indian fellow to be taken to the Shawanese towns.

William Crawford against the Indian towns on or near the river Samlusky. It will be unnecessary for me to relate what is so well known, the circumstances and unfortunate events of that expedition it will be suflicient to observe, that having on Tuesday the fourth of June, fought the enemy near Sandusky, we lay that night in our camp, and the next day (ired on each other at tlie distance of three hundred yards, doing little or no execution.

I tried a long time to disengage my horse, until I could hear the enemy just behind me, and on each side, but in vain. lUve tlien I was obliged to leave him.

the enemy.

About ten o'clock this day we sat down to eat a little, having tasted nothing from Tuesday, the day of our engagement, until this time whicli was on Tliursday, and now the only thing we had to eat was a scrap of pork to eacii. AVe had sat down by a warrior's path wiiich we had not suspected, when eight or nine warriors appeared, riuniiing oJf hastily we left our baggage and provision, but were not discovered by the party; for skulking some time in the grass and buslies, we returned to the place and recovered our baggage.

In our journey through the glades, or wide extended dry meadows, about twelve o'clock this day, we discovered a party of Indians in front, but skulking in the grass and bushes were not l)erceived by tliem. In these glades we were in great danger, as \w could be seen at a great distance. In the afternoon of this day there fell a heavy rain, and then traveling on we saw a party of tlie enemy about two hundred yards before us, but hiding ourselves in the bushes we had again the good fortune not to be discovered. Tills night we got out of the glades, having in the niglit crossed the paths by whicli we had advanced to Sandusky. ll was our design to leave all these paths to the right and to come in by the Tuscarawas. We would have made a much greater progress, had it not been for two of our companions wlio were lame, the one having his foot burnt, the other with a swelling in

Tiiey had followed on our tracks from these glades, on our return to which we found the horses and rode. We were carried to Wachatomakak, a town of the Mingoes and Shawanese. I think it was on the third day we reached the town, whicli when we were approaching, tlie Indians in whose custody we were, began to look sour, having been kind to us before and given us a little meat and Hour to eat, which they had found or taken from some of our men on tiieir retreat. This town is small and we were told was about two miles distant from the main town to which they intended
to carry us.

The inhabitants from this town came out with clubs and tomahawks, struck, beat and abused us greatly. One of my two companions they seized, and having strii)ped him naked, blacked him with coal and water. This was the sign of being burnt; the man seemed to surmise it, and shed tears. He asked me the meaning of his being blacked; but I was forbid by the enemy in tlieir own language, to tell him what was intended. In Englisli. wliich they spoke easily, having been often at Fort Pitt, they assured iiini he was not to be hurt. I know of no reason for making hnn the first object of their cruelty unless it was that lie was the oldest.

Tlie unhappy man had reached the door of the council house, for liaving beat <ind wounded in a manner shocking to the sight arrived before him we had it in our power to view the spectacle- it was indeed the most horrid that can be conceived.

admitted to tliese councils but only the chiefs or iiead warriors have the piivilege of speaking. The head warriors are accounted such from tlie number of scalps and i)risoners they have taken.

Two days after, a party of every nation that was near beinp collected, it was determined on to take no more prisoners of any sort. They had held a larpe council, and the determination was, that if it were possible they could find a child of a span or three inches long, they would show no mercy to it. At the conclusion of the council it was agreed upon by all the tribes present, viz: the Tawaws, Chii)pawaws, the Wyandots, the Mingoes. the Delawares. the Siiawanese.

On the day after, I saw an Indian who had just come into town, and who said that the prisoners he was bringitig to be burnt, and who lie said was a doctor, had made his escape from him. I knew this must have been Dr. Knight, who went as surgeon of the e.\peditioii. The Indian had a wound four inches long in his head.

Being now adopted in an Indian family, and having some conhdence for my safety, I took the liberty to contradict this and said that I knew the doctor, wiio was a weak, little man. Tlie other warriors laughed immoderately, and did not seem to credit him.* At this time I was told that Col. Crawford was burnt, and they greatly exulted over it. The day after the council I have mentioned, about forty warriors, accompanied by George Girty, came early in the morning round the house where I was. The squaws gave me up, I was sitting before the door of the house they \n\t a roi)e round my neck, tied my arms behind my l)ack, strii)ped me naked, and blacked me in d me, the usual manner. George Girty, as soon as 1 was tied, d and said that I now should get what I had deserved many years. I was led away to a town distant about five miles, to which a messenger had been dispatched to desire them to i)repare to receive me. Arriving at this town, I was beaten with clubs and the pipe ends of their tomahawks, and was kept for some time tied to a tree before a house door. In the meanwhile the inhabitants set out to another town al)Out two miles distant, where I was to be burnt, and where I arrived about three o'clock in the afternoon. Here also was a council house, part of it covered and i)art of it without a roof. In the part of it where no cover was, but only sides built up, there stood a post about sixteen feet in height, and in the middle of the house around the post, there were three piles of wood built about three feet high and four feet from the post. Being brought to the post my arms were tied behind ine, and the tiiong or cord with which they were bound was fastened to the post a rope also was put about my neck, and tied to tlie post about four feet above my head. During tlie time they were tying me, piles of wood were kindled and began to fiame. Death by burning, which appeared to be now my fate, I had ye;

TliediviiieRrac-e of (,ocl liail inaile it less alarraiiiR to me; for on my way this dav I had been greatly exercised in regard to my latter end. 1 knew' myself to have been a regular member of the church, and to have .sought repc-ntance for my sins: but though I had often lie.ird ..f the faith of assurance, had known notliing of it; but early this day, instantaneously by a'

change wrought uiJon me sudden and perceivalile as lightning, an assurance of my peace made with God, sprung u]. in mind. The following words were the subject of my meditation " In peace thou Shalt see God. Fear not those who can kill the body. In peace shalt thou depart." I was on this occasion by a conlidence
in

mind not to be resisted, fully assured of my salvation. This being the case I was willing, satisfied and glad to die. I was tied to the i)ost, as 1 have already .said, and the tlanie was

kindled. The day was clear, not a cloud to be seen. If there were clouds low in the horizon, the sides of the hou.se prevented me from seeing them, but I heard no thunder, or observed any sign of approaching rain; just as the fire of one pile began to blaze, the wind rose, from the time they began to kindle the tire and to tie me to the post, until the wind began to blow, was about tifteen minutes. The wind blew a hurricane, and the rain followed in less than three minutes. The rain fell violent and the lire, though it began to blaze considerably, was instantly extinguished. Tiie rain lasted about a quarter of an hour. "When it was over the savages stood amazed, and were a long time silent. At last one said, we will let him alone till morning, and take a whole day's frolic in burning him. The sun at this time was about tliree hours high. It was agreed upon, and the rope about my neck was untied, and making me sit down, tliey began to dance round me. They continued dancing in this manner until eleven o'clock at night; in the meantime, beating, kicking and wounding me with their tomahawks and clubs.* At last one of tiie wairiors, the Half Moon, asked me if I was sleepy? 1 answered, yes. The head warrior then chose out three warriors to take care of me. I was taken to a block house my arms were tied until the cord was hid in the flesh, they were tied in two places, round the wrist and above the elbows. A rope was fastened about my neck and tied to a beam of the house, but i)ermitting me to lie down on a board. The three warriors were constantly harassing and troubling me, saying.

attempted to unloose the rope about my neck tried to gnaw it, but it was in vain, as it was as thick as my tliumband as hard as iron, being made of a buffalo hide. I wrought with it a long time, gave it out, and could see no relief. At this time I saw daybreak and heard the cock crow. I made a second attempt, almost without liope, pulling the rope by putting my fingers between my neck and it, and to my great suri)rise it came easily untied. It was a noose with two or three knots tied over it. I slipped over the warriors as they lay, and iiaving got out of the house, looked back to see if there was any disturbance. I tlien ran

Iiaving observed a number of liorses in thegladeas I ran tlirough it. 1 went back to catch one, and on my way found a l)iece of an old rug or (juilt hanging on a fence, which I tt^ok witli me. Having caught the liorse, the rope with whicli I hud been tied served for a halter, I rode off. The horse was strong and swift, and the woods being open and the country level, about ten o'clock that day I crossed the Scioto river at a place, by computation, fifty full miles from the town. I had rode about twenty-five miles on this side of the Scioto by three o'clock in the afternoon, when tlie horse began to fail, and could no longer go on a trot. I instantly left him, and on foot, ran about twenty miles farther that day, making in the whole tlie distance of near one hundred miles. In tlie evening I heard hallooing beirind me, and for this reason did not halt until about ten o'clock at niglit, when I .sat down, was extremely sick and vomited but when the moon rose, which might have been about two hours after, I went on and traveled until day. During the night I had a patii, but in the morning judged it piudent to forsake the path and take a ridge for a distance of fifteen miles, in a line at right angles to my course, putting back as I went along, with a stick, the weeds which I had bent, lest I should be tracked by the enemy.
