This chapter details the meeting between the Five Nations and Captain Ingoldsby. The death of Colonel Slaughter, the Governor of New York, was very prejudicial to the affairs of New York. Captain Ingoldsby, who had no other commission but that of captain of one of the Independent Companies of Foot, took upon himself the government of the province without any authority. At a meeting on the 6th of June 1692, Captain Ingoldsby told the Five Nations of his resolutions to prosecute the war, and then blamed them for not sending a party down Cadarackui River to join them that went from Albany against Montreal, and for their carelessness in suffering during the last winter when hunting. He instructed them to keep the enemy in perpetual alarm by continuing their incursions into the enemy's country, and to give him timely notice of all their activities.
