James Crokatt Letter

Identifier: MS-1035

A letter from James Crokatt to a "Mr. Smyth." Crockatt wrote this letter to someone he was representing in negotiations for a possible purchase from Mrs. Dick. Crokatt believed that she had trifled too long and expected more than the purchase was worth, so he advised his employer to withdraw the offer. He then mentioned that Colonel Grant was nearing Fort Prince George in the Cherokee nation and predicted that the entire conquest of North America will be completed this ensuing campaign.
