This report was secured by Dr. Mark F. Boyd, whom readers of the Quarterly know well, from the original in the files of the Intelligence Division, Engineers Corps, War Dept. Washington. In an early issue of the Quarterly Dr. Boyd will give us a paper on the so-called Negro Fort which will be an introduction to a series of letters written near the site of the fort by Edmund Doyle, trader and representative of John Forbes and Company (successors to Panton, Leslie and Company) to Forbes, and James and John Innerarity, members of that firm (1808-1817).
