"One of the scarcest of the State histories. Unfortunately, un-
finished; the history stops at 1785." Sabin.

"Although the title indicates the intention to bring the history
down to the date of publication, the narrative is suspended with
the declaration of peace in 1783. Both volumes are devoted largely
to the history of the border warfare with the Creeks and Chero-
kees. Numerous incidents relating to the savages of these nations
and their sanguinary attacks upon the frontiers, with sketches of
their chiefs and of the loyalist refugees who led them are nar-
rated. These were derived in many instances directly from the
lips of some of the survivors of these bloody scenes, from manu-
scripts or from printed documents, no longer accessible to the
student of history." Field.
