Milledgeville, April 24, 1814.We have information from the Creek Nation which may be relied on, to the following purport;
That the great body of the Hostile Indians have dispersed and fled precipitately towards the Spanish posts of St. Marks and Pensacola-that in their flight they were met by Col. Russell’s army, who killed a great number of them-their principal Prophet Francis was among the slain. Our armies have concentrated in the neighbourhood of Hoith-le wau le.
It is reported, that some of the hostile Creeks have sued for peace and delivered up the Tallassee King to our officers-but how they have contrived to resuscitate this old King, who was killed at Autossee, we cannot imagine.
