Lieut. Gov. Henry Hamilton to Gen. Carleton, Detroit, 4/25/1778: <April the 5th Mr. Charles Beaubin who acts at the Miamis came in from a scout not having been able to prevail on the Miamis to act with spirit He with a young man named Lorimer engaged four score Shawanese from Tchelacase & Pecoui to go towards the Fort on the Kentucke river, east of the ohio, into which it discharges directly opposite the great Mineamis or Rocky river -- the Fort is about thirty miles from the mouth -- The number of men in it about 80 -- Here they had the good fortune to make Prisoners Captain Daniel Boone with 26 of his men, whom they brought off with their arms without killing or losing a man. The Savages could not be prevailed on to attempt the Fort, which by means of their prisoners might have been easily done with success. These Shawanese delivered up four of their Prisoners to me, but took Boone with them expecting by his means to effect something. By Boone's account the people on the frontiers have been incessantly harrassed by parties of Indians they have not been able to sow grain and at Kentucke will not have a morsel of bread by the middle of June. Cloathing is not to be had, nor do they expect relief from the Congress -- their dilemma will probably induce them to trust to the Savages who have shewn so much humanity to their prisoners, & come to this place before winter.> "Haldiman Papers," Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society, HISTORICAL COLLECTIONS 9 (1886):435.

Lieut. Gov. Henry Hamilton to Gov. Haldimand, Detroit, 9/5/1778: <A Prisoner brought in here by the Shawanese lately, who was taken near one of the Forts on the River Kentucke, tells me the Rebels were lately reinforced with three Companies each of 70 men. There are three different forts on that river & a forth [sic] has been begun lately at its conflux with the Ohio. The Shawanese who are very Jealous of such incroachments, have drawn together a considerable number of Warriors with design to attack them, by the last accounts their numbers amount to upwards of 400. Monsieur de Quindre a Lieutenant of the Indian Department who went to carry them ammunition & took ten white men with him, writes me word that a deserter from the Virginians declares that the Rebels have lately been vanquished in every quarter by the King's Troops, that they are in the utmost distress for cloathing and other necessaries & that they are wearied out & unable to support the war any longer.> On the other hand, his own allies were none too reliable: <For the French Inhabitants, at all the out Posts, I firmly believe there is not one in twenty, whose oath of allegiance would have force enought to bind him to his duty, added to this that the greatest part of the traders among them who are called English, are rebels in their hearts.> "Haldiman Papers," Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society, HISTORICAL COLLECTIONS 9 (1886):465.
