Logan Campaign 86
Treaty of 1787 Col. Logan's reply to the speech of Captain Johnny, 2: <Brothers. There is a great many designing men in this country, and some may encourage you to go to war, because they know if you do, that you will be drove out of the country, and then they can go and live where you do, and laugh how they have fooled you. This will surely be the case, & it is you and us must fight the battle. When your country will lie waste, then the Americans will sell it, but if you will live at peace, and keep possession of it, I expect the people of the United States in America, will not take it from you, so you can be a happy people, & live in your own land. As to the prisoners, I am sorry you have not got the young Prince, but he lives very well. I hope this is not the last time we are to see each other, or to exchange prisoners.> continued
