This chapter focuses on the outrage felt by Governor Edward Hyde and Council President Thomas Pollock toward “Tuscarora Jack.” Barnwell's earlier ravings had alienated both of them. Then against their explicit orders he had made a treaty with the Tuscaroras and their allies, which essentially let them off the hook. If that were not bad enough, as they saw it, he had then violated his own treaty by attacking and enslaving the Cores and their allies. That had only started the Indian attacks all over again. Hyde and Pollock were not so much angry at his enslaving the Indians; rather they blamed him for not having utterly destroyed the Indians in the first place. Now North Carolina was paying for Barnwell's actions.
