Description
 
In Feb. 1750, Thomas Lee, the Pres. of the Virginia Council, wrote a letter to Conrad Weiser, his good friend. In the exchange of correspondence that followed, Lee asked Weiser, the experienced & influential Indian agent, to be a part of his  proposal to unite the English colonies with the Six Nations. After discussing Lee’s plan with the gov. of PA, Weiser prepared to travel to Onondaga, deep in Iroquois country. Weiser’s principal task there was to invite Iroquois representatives to a council at Fredericksburg, where Lee would address them, give them presents, &, it was hoped, negotiate a peace between the two adversaries, the Iroquois & the Catawbas. But Weiser was unable to convince the Iroquois to attend Lee’s council. Illus.
