<Some prisoners having been taken by the inhabitants from the Indians in the month of October last [1786], among which were a squaw and a Frenchman, the two latter were sent out with proposals for an exchange of prisoners; in consequence of which, Noamohouoh, a Chief of the Shawonee nation, attended at the mouth of Limestone, on the 4th of March last [1787], and delivered the following speech. "My Brothers, I am very glad you are willing to exchange prisoners, and agreeable to your request by the squaw and Frenchman, have sent in three of yours, and hope that you will give up two for Mr. Clark's son, and one a -piece for the others, agreeable to your own proposals. I have been sent here by Captain Johnny, the Head Chief of the Shawonee nations, to represent him to you, as he could collect the whole of the prisoners; which he will do and be at Limestone within one month of the date hereof; and for fear your people should be uneasy, have sent with me the above-mentioned prisoners as a confirmation of our intentions." He further says that "the Delawares, Mingoes, and Wiandots, have wanted them to go up the Big River [Ohio?] to make peace with the white people, but we refused, and will not have any concern with them, as we think this is the place to exchange prisoners and settle our peace, and hope you will not pay any attention to other nations talk, for we mean to be at peace."> VIRGINIA GAZETTE 4/19/1787. The prisoners referred to as being taken in this piece must have been taken during the Logan Campaign of the early autumn of 1786. Quoted in David I. Bushnell, Jr., "Daniel Boone at Limestone, 1786-1787," VIRGINIA MAGAZINE OF HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY 25 (1917):1-2.

The Treaty of Fort McIntosh was signed 1/21/1785 by Commissioners of the US "and the Sachems and Warriors of the Wiandot, Delaware, Chippewa and Ottawa Nations." The Shawnees did not take part in this treaty, but a year later, at the mouth of the Great Miami River, on 1/31/1786, they signed a separate treaty with the US. David I. Bushnell, Jr., "Daniel Boone at Limestone, 1786-1787," VIRGINIA MAGAZINE OF HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY 25 (1917):2n.

Kept in the summer of 1787, these several sheets of paper, folded and fastened in book form, list the supplies furnished to the Indians and charged to the "State of Virgania." See the xerox of the Bushnell article for the complete list. There is a list for 7/10/1787 for "Indan purvistion," that includes flour, salt, "backer" [bacon], whiskey, blankets, and "2 Months Diet for the interpreter peter" [L4.16.0]. A list of 8/6/1787 and another of 8/10/1787 "furnished the Exspress from Capt Johney" and "Capt Johneys Company and prisers" with supplies, including 54 gallons of whiskey and "2 yds Caleco for buril of the Dad." The total charge to the state, which Logan approved, was L48.12.2. David I. Bushnell, Jr., "Daniel Boone at Limestone, 1786-1787," VIRGINIA MAGAZINE OF HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY 25 (1917):5-7.

The endorsement of Logan on Boone's accounts, all dated 8/22/1787, probably indicate that was the date of DB's departure from Limestone for Richmond VA to take his seat as a member of the VA legislature. He evidently carried the papers with him, and presented them in the capital for collection. The following notation in the mss. JOURNAL OF THE GOVERNOR AND COUNCIL [in the Virginia State Library] records their receipt: <Monday October 22d 1787. The Governor laid before the board a Claim of Daniel Boone for Supplies furnished the Indian Prisoners per order of Colo Logan. . . . Whereupon it is advised That the Auditor be directed to settle the said Claims and make a reasonable allowance therefor out of the Contingent fund to be charged to the United States.> There were 5 claims, for a total of L101.1.6 paid to Boone on 10/24/1787.

Boone was to supply the prisoners of the Logan campaign along with John Crow. At this time he was an inn keeper and merchant there, having settled a few months previous [sic]. His accounts made at this time, all in his own writing, have been discovered among the "Vouchers of the Contingent Fund" in the Virginia State Library. They are reprinted in: David I. Bushnell, Jr., "Daniel Boone at Limestone, 1786-1787," VIRGINIA MAGAZINE OF HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY 25 (1917):1-11.
