Washington, and also a report noting in part: "...a gentleman immediately from New Orleans who descended the rivers Ohio and Mississippi...that a body of General Clark's party...collected at the mouth of Cumberland River...their intentions were...to proceed to Louisiana for the purpose of attacking that place..." with more. This was William Clark of Lewis & Clark fame, and this expedition against the Indians would lead to the Battle of Fallen Timbers.
