Capt Brockholls Letter viz.

New Yorke July 15th 1682.
Hon'd Sts

Yors of the Eleaventh instant this day received Mr Slichten-
horse Declaracon concerning Indians &c. which if true cannot
apprehend is designed or intended to hurt or annoy his Maj-
estys Subjects in Maryland, & Virginia nor Judge the same
sufficient to declare or make them the Kings Enemys who
hitherto have and hope will continue in peace and freindship
wth us and all his Maties Subjects our Neighbours, But as wee
never have concerned our selves in their differences quarrells
and disputes with other nations of Indians especially soe remote,
soe thinke it noe wayes adviseable or serviceable to the King
or Country to Doe it now, The supply of amunicon being a
principall part of our trade have noe cause to forbidd till they
are really knowne and declared to be our Enemys, And then
Selfe prservacon as well as our particular regard to yor parts
&c will obleige us to take all due courses and Orders to prvent
the same But hope when the Indians and you speake together
the peace may be soe freindly and amicable made and con-
firmed that these, matters premissed may give you and us
noe further trouble I was sorry at the occasion But could doe
noe less then Ressent yors which much surprised me and I
must now lett you knowe that none is more Zealous for his
Maties Service and good of his subjects in Generall nor ready
to assist you in this yor negotiacon and to Endeavour the quiet
peace and Tranquilly of this and the provinces of Maryland
and Virginia, then my self to the utmost of my capacity who
desires only to be truely understood and esteemed as I Really
and Sincerely Am: Honrd Srs

Yor Assured freind and
humble Servant
