Governor Dinwiddie to Governor Dobbs.

Enclos'd I send You a L're from London w'ch came under my Cover. I have a L're from Major Lewis, among the Cherokees. He has finish'd the fort I sent him to build for them, and that much to their Satisfaction, and with't the least Assistance from So. Carolina. I daily expect 150 Cherokees to our Assistance, and I am preparing Necessaries for them.

No news from No'w'd. I hope our Forces will have Success ag'st Crown Point. Various News in regard to Minorca and the Engagem't of Adm'l Bying with the french; that nothing of Certainty yet perspires.

Y'r Ex's most ob'd't h'ble Serv't.
