549. WH Sat Jun 20, 1795: Knoxville, May 8. It is highly probable that the Choctaws will join the Chickasaws in the war against the Creeks. We learn that upwards of one hundred men, of Mero district impressed with a high sense of the friendship of the Chickasaws, and the essential services by them rendered to that infant settlement, and knowing the imminent danger to which the Chickasaw nation is exposed from a general invasion of the Creeks, voluntarily, and without the order of government, marched out the 25th of April from Nashville, with Major William Colbert, (A Chickasaw chief) to aid that friendly nation, in defense against the common enemy the blood thirsty Creeks. It is here said and believed, that the Creeks have sent runners to the Shawanese and other hostile northern tribes, reminding them that the Chickasaws have, for several years past, joined the armies of the United States commanded by generals St. Clair and Wayne, and urging them to unite inn the total extermination of the Chickasaws. The number of the Chickasaws to the Creeks are as ___ to sixteen. Add to the Creeks the northern tribes, and the fate of the Chickasaws appears inevitable. Is it possible that the United States will suffer the Chickasaw nation, (men, women and children,) to be totally destroyed, for their friendship to them, mani____ in joining the armies of St. Clair and Wayne ____ the hostile northern tribes, and in killing marauding Creeks upon Mero district? National honor, ___, gratitude and sound policy revolt at the idea! The meeting which was by agreement, to take place at Tellico block-house on the first day of June between governor Blount on the part of the United States, and the Cherokees, to complete the exchange of prisoners, (which was done in part last December) postponed to a future day.

Before his death he informed Capt.

555. WH Sat Jun 27, 1795: Keene. June 9. On Sunday evening, May 24; As three men were attempting, with a pilfered Seine, to make a draw on Connecticut river, a little below Bellows Falls. Not being well acquainted with the Fishing ground, they ventured too far out, the stream took and forced them on a bar, where the boat overset, and a Mr. John Wallis, a native of North Britain, was drowned; the other two, with the greatest exertions, reached the shore, and on the 2d of June, the body was found floating in the river, about 3 miles below where the accident happened.
