Page 3 has an interesting letter from  James Cresswell concerning the capture of his family & himself by Saganan Indians at  Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, and were: "...stripped...of all our goods & effects, tied ...together by the necks, and brought...to Detroit..." but were interceded by Major Smith who gave them their freedom.
