Sandwich, July 18, 1812.

My Brethren of the Six Nations:! —
The powerful army under my command is now in possession of Canada. To you who are friendly it will afford safety and protection. All your lands and all your rights of every kind will be guaranteed to you if you will take no part against us. I salute you in friendship and hope you will now act such a part as will promote your interest, your safety and happiness. May the Great Spirit guide you in person.


WM. HULL,
Governor of the Territory of Michigan and
Commander of the Northwestern Army
of the United States.
