ampment of four hundred and fifty of them, who had been straggling in the woods for four years, was found not Adair, 410. far north of the head waters of the Mobile River, on their way to the country of the Muskhogees. It was about the year 1698, that three or four score of their Logan, Mss. families, with the consent of the government of Pennsylvania, removed from Carolina, and planted themselves on the Susquehannah. Sad were the fruits of that hospitality. Others followed; and when, in 1732, the number of Indian fighting men in Pennsylvania was estimated to be seven hundred, one half of them were Shawnee emigrants. So desolate was the wilderness, that a vagabond tribe could wander undisturbed from Cumberland River to the Alabama, from the head waters of the Santee to the Susquehannah.

West of the Alleghany there were no European settlements, except as traders, especially from Carolina, had ventured among the Indians, and, becoming wild like the men with whom they trafficked, had established their Chap. XXIII.} houses among the Cherokees, the Muskhogees, and the Chickasas. There existed no settlement, even of Carolina, on streams that flow westward. The abodes of civilized man reached scarcely a hundred miles from the
nd associates in his disinterested purpose. To further this end, a charter from George II., dated the ninth day of June, 1732 June 9. 1732, erected the country between the Savannah and the Alatamaha, and from the head-springs of those rivers due we1732, erected the country between the Savannah and the Alatamaha, and from the head-springs of those rivers due west to the Pacific, into the province of Georgia, and placed it, for twenty-one years, under the Establishment of the Colony of Georgia guardianship of a corporation, in trust for the poor.
