Unto the Honorable General Assembly of the Colony of Connecticut now Presently Sitting at Hartford, May 20,1760

The memorial of Ben Uncas, sachem, with his council of the Mohegan tribe of Indians, humbly sheweth that a party of Indians, most of them not Mohegans but by marriage indulged to live amongst us, about sixteen months ago, instigated by persons called the Mason party, did set up another sachem and withdrawn their allegiance from Ben Uncas, our right and lawful sachem, approven of by Your Honors.

The deposition of Thomas Edwards, aged 30 years or there about, testifieth and saith that an Indian of about [ torn ] years of age did tell me that Ninigret was about to build three wigwams for the Indians to meet in, and that they were minded to go to fight.  And that there were to come to him the Block Island Indians and such as were of them that were not willing to fight Ninigret sent them back again, and this was confirmed to me by my seeing five canoes come over.  Also the Cowesett Indians, the Pequots, Mohegans, Long Islanders
