Description: One 1702 letter from James Logan to William Penn regarding fictitious charge of French Indians; no trouble from "our Indians," except perhaps at German tract; claim land not purchased. Three 1745 letters from Logan and Governor George Thomas to Conrad Weiser regarding recent attack of enemy French Indians on fort at Saratoga; asking for more intelligence of Indian intentions; dangers from Chartier; Thomas reports rumor of snowshoes stocked at French Mississippi outpost for attack on Albany and back parts of Pennsylvania. Unlikely, but possible; Weiser should assure the Indians and encourage settlers to arm.
