3 Govr will let them know whether he thinks it reasonable Whatever the governr pleases to propose for settling peace they are willing to submitt to They are settled within ye govt. of Virga are they willing to continue in this government, and on what terms do they desire a peace They desire to be on Roanoke River near the trading path called Weecacana, but had rather ye govr would appoint them a place for their settlement Do they desire to live in ye same manner as our tributarys do, a what do they mean by this proposal They cannot answer it without consulting their town- they may tell yes and their people may be offended with them and not stand to their offers. Why do they rather desire to live here than to return to their old settlemts in North Carolina They can’t say till they know it from their people, for they don’t know whether all their people would be willing to return to Carolina, and what they proposed abt their settlemt is of their own heads and not by order of their people. Why dont they go back to their old settlement and why do they stay where they are now. They ran up then for fear of the Savannas Do they design to live always there- No, they resolved to come down to Janiaitantarr Why dont they then go to Collo Pallock- He knows nothing of him for none goes there but Blunt Did Blunt desire them to come in and make peace- No, Blunt kept the letter that was sent to them, in disdain of the English, for that he would not be their letter caryer- they see the fellow belonging to Kinshaugh that took Will because he had shott at him while he was in Nahasookha fort, and that he delivd him to ye Senequas. they know he brot letters from Collo Pallock wch were carryed abt ye towns- They know Will was ye carryer of the letters. Do they know that he is now in prison here- They did not know so before. Have they any more to say- Nothing, but wait to hear what proposals the govr has to make, that they may carry it back to their people.
