July 8 1761 Joseph Argimaut
Chief of the tribe of Mesiguash
voluntarily submitted to and
acknowledged George the Third as
his only Sovereign.
Treaties of Peace have been
made and "Talks" had with
several Chiefs of tribes by the
Governor and Council- but I
cannot find any general
surrender or resignation of title
to territory regarded as theirs
by the Indians.
