8822. VINCENNES, Danger from Indians.—

I have the pleasure to enclose you
the particulars of Colonel Clark's success
against Vincennes. * * * I fear it will be impossible
for Colonel Clark to be so strengthened
as to enable him to do what he desires. Indeed,
the express who brought this letter, gives us
reason to fear Vincennes is in danger from
a large body of Indians collected to attack it,
and said, when he came from Kaskaskias, to be
within thirty leagues of the place.—
To General Washington. Washington ed. i, 221. Ford ed., ii, 240.
