To Capt. Burrington


My Lords Commissrs for Trade & Plantations having under their consideration your letter to them of the 4th Sept. last wherein you mention some apprehension you had that the Indians of South Carolina might make an attempt against those of your Government I am commanded to acquaint you that their Lordships think that it will be for His Maj. service and the good of the Province under your command that you should use the most effectual means to prevent any misunderstanding among the Indians.

My Lords Commissrs for Trade and Plantations have wrote by this occasion to Col. Johnson and to Col. Cosby to use their endeavours to put an end to these misunderstandings.

I am Your most humble Servant
