EXTRACT OF GOT. FLETCHER'S SPEECH

AT THE OPENING OF 4th SESS. 5th PROV I ASSEMBLY 16 OCT I 1696.

[ Council Min. VII. ]

Mr Speaker I am to acquaint you I have been necessitated twice this summer by advice and consent of the Council to visite Albany the ffrench Governor of Canida marched with so considerable a force into the Indian Countrey of Onnondage and Oneyde that I could not suppose his design would end there but expected that he would with that strength attempt Albany where I was ready to adjust my duty in defence of the place he contented himselfe with a poor insult over our naked Indians and retired Yet he destroyed the Castles and corne of those two Nations who must perish this winter if not relieved by us.

You all know they have been true to His Matyes interest in joyning with this Province against our common Enemy the ffrench and unlesse encouraged may be compelled by poverty to make their peace with them.
