In Their Own Words
April 05, 1740
Oglethorpe Passed Through Savannah
“…In the Evening pretty late, the General arrived from Charles-Town, on his Way back to the South; whither he was hasting, and designed to make but a short Stay here: There was little Room to have much Talk with him this Night; but we found him well satisfied with his Reception in Carolina, and the Aid he was assured of from thence: So that the Seige of Augustin was now again talked of as a Thing certainly designed.”
