498 | To the Board of Trade

    Boston Sep. 4. 1766

    My Lords

    By advice of Council1 I transmit to your Lordships Copies of other papers received from the Western borders of this Province. The first part consists of Depositions in Support of a Narrative before transmitted to your Lordships.2 The Remainder is a Letter from Mr Woodbridge a Justice & Judge of the Court that County, and the Agent and Patron of the Stockbridge Indians. He is a Very honest & well meaning Man, tho’ at the time of writing this Letter He was too much under the influence of the ill usage he received. I have since received advice that the regular troops were returned & the Country was quiet: but that there was ^no^ need of my interposition in favor of the fugitives of Nobletown, for that their crops, as well as they are Houses & Stocks were destroyed.

    I am, with great respect, My Lords, Your Lordships most obedient and most humble Servant

    Fra Bernard
