Arthur St. Clair to the Chiefs of the Wyandots, September 19, 1790

Dublin Core

Subject

Request for the Wyandot Nation to Join the U.S. in War Against the Shawnee

Description

"Refers to an earlier meeting between the U.S. and several Indian tribes at Muskingum Falls [Ohio region], which apparently aimed at peace between the Indian tribes. Now St. Clair accuses the Shawnees & Miamis of being "set to do evil;" he calls upon the Wyandot to honor their alliance with the U.S. and declare war on the Shawnee. Informs them that the bearer of the message has a letter to the commander at Detroit, and asks them to see that he gets there." [http://wardepartmentpapers.org/document.php?id=4653]
