Oglethorpe Sailed from Georgia

James Oglethorpe sailed from Georgia aboard the ship Two Brothers. He had been summoned by the Trustees to report in person on the following matters: neglect in keeping the Trustees informed on what was happening in Georgia, what was perceived by the Trustees as excessive spending by Oglethorpe, Georgia’s relations with South Carolina, and the need to arm Georgia against a possible Spanish attack.
