Summary
Statement of account (4 pages) of the British Army's garrison at Fort Niagara with trader Edward Pollard from 1773 December 25 to 1774 July 8, for sundries furnished to Indians, and the services of an interpreter and a blacksmith. Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith of the 10th Regiment of Foot commanded the garrison and its dependencies. Sundries consisted of rum, tobacco and pipes, blankets, clothing, paint, knives, flints, and ammunition, often provided to groups of Native Americans upon their departure from the Fort. Those recorded include Caughnawagas, Cayugas, Chippewas, Hurons, Kickapoos, Mississaugas, Oneidas, Onondagas, Ottawas, Senecas, Tuscaroras, and Indians from Detroit and the Ohio Country. The document bears instructions from Smith to Francis Hutchinson, secretary to General Haldimand in New York, for payment to Edward Pollard; Pollard's signature; and an endorsement by Anthony Farrington acknowledging receipt from Gabriel Maturin by order of General Thomas Gage, dated Boston, 1774 August 31.
