Abstract

Contains a draft of a letter from Lieutenant Governor Alexander Spotswood, Williamsburg, to Col. [Thomas] Pollock, President of North Carolina, regarding the defense of Pollock's claim that he acted unjustly and misapplied the money given for North Carolina's assistance. Spotswood threatens to not respond to any further letters which contain false accusations against him. In addition, Spotswood complains of the interference of North Carolina with the Meherrin Indians, Tributary Indians in Virginia, who were called away into North Carolina while they are under the protection of the Colony of Virginia. Lastly, Spotswood further defends himself by stating that he has encouraged the Tributary Indians to be educated in the Christain faith.
