This chapter shows that, by July 1759, more than sixty Catawba warriors were on their way north to help His Majesty's forces fight the French. Closer to home, Hagler and twenty-three others traveled through South Carolina on something of a goodwill tour, lobbying their friends for supplies and protection. During the first week in August, they stopped to see Adamson at his plantation on the Wateree River; later in the month they dined with Samuel Wyly near Pine Tree Hill; in early September they stayed for several days with their old confidant Evans along the Santee. From each stop they sent runners to Charleston bearing friendly greetings and requests for everything from a fort to a keg of rum.
