a much greater number fell into the hands of the victors. The Indians retreated to their camp on the Licking, while the colony was at a loss what to do. Prominent men were called to make a effort to persuade the Indians to a treaty.
Reckoning upon his past experiences, one of the commissioners took his gun, loaded it, and, crossing over to the Indian camp, called out that if the Indians did not immediately surrender, he would fire, and that it would be the last shot. The Indians received his message with alacrity, and on the 17th of April, (1773,) they retreated with great reluctance.
Shortly after this, Hopestown was built. It is believed that at least some twenty or thirty were killed by a party of Indians while at this point. The enterprise, strength, and constancy, of the citizens of the town cannot be too highly commended. The Indians retreated, however, returned, and did not cease to annoy and annoy the settlement until the time of the signing of the treaty of Hopestown. At that time the Indians were induced to enter into a treaty, which reduced their hostilities against the settlers. The peace was made April 29th, in the year 1775.
It remains to be noticed, at this place, where was the settlement of St. Clair. The nearest station in the latter part of October, of this year, was at Point Pleasant. On the following April, however, the settlement was at Paintsville, and the accounts of it are correct. This circumstance occurred about the time the great battle was fought at the mouth of Wabash creek, upon the Ohio river, when the ill success of the American forces, in front of the British on the opposite side of the Ohio, led to the revolution. The treaty with Great Britain had been signed in 1776. The unsettled accounts of the war served to give rise to an age of terror in the heads of the people of Kentucky, and awakened in many minds in this vicinity, the depressing, but truly prophetic idea, that the peace party was unworthy of trust. a3f8a02ae1
