Image description: Letter from James Logan to Iroquois leaders Shikellamy and Alumapees. Letter implores the Lenape at Shamokin to detain representatives from New York and New Jersey and send them to Philadelphia for trial, as the Pennsylvania government had deemed it unlawful for non-Pensylvanian Europeans to go among the Indians within the Pennsylvania territory, lest they interfere with trade alliances.
