- This is a letter from Major Patrick Carr to Edward Telfair, Governor of Georgia (1786-1787, 1790-1793), dated April 26, 1786. Carr informs the Governor that he is transmitting a letter from (Timothy?) Barnard (no longer attached). He also indicates that he will send a white man or an Indian, at the Governor's request, to St. Augustine (?) to discover why the Indians have been summoned to that settlement. Carr speculates that the returning Indians will "do mischief" along the frontier, and he requests ammunition.
