A letter from Robert Dinwiddie to the Committee of the Ohio Company (February 15, 1753)

[15 February 1753]
[ . . . ] I am sorry to hear by a letter from Mr. Trent, that some of the Twigtwees are gone over to the French, and that some French officers, &c. are at Logstown building of houses, &c. and that there are many others at their forts on the lakes, which he calls an army, but hope they are only trades from Canada. This information I had last week by express, which I returned, and desired him to get what farther intelligence he possibly could, between this and May, when I shall send some powder, arms, &c. to Winchester, a present to the Indians.
