Schuyler to the Committee of Tryon County about Indian Affairs, July 4, 1777
Letter Schuyler to the Committee of Tryon County
Your letter of the 2nd Instant was delivered me last Night by Mr. Moore.
As General Herkimer has made an Agreement with Brandt, and that the letter is gone or going to Onondago I do not apprehend that the Inhabitants at Cherry Valley will be in any Danger from the Indians, more especially as a Treaty is to be held here on the 15th Instant, which the Indians have generally promised [ ] and willing to afford every Assistance in my power, and hitherto it has been effectual for no Mischief, worth mentioning, has as yet been perpetrated in any part of your Country and you may depend upon it that upon no necessary occasion will you [be] left without proper support.
May God keep you in his protection is the sincere wish of Gentlemen.
And humble servant
To the Committee of Tryon County
