After that letter was read, our hearts were
filled with so much love for our Red Brethren,
that, on looking over and considering the busi-
ness upon which we had come, we felt a desire
to see as many of you together as could be
convened: and this day was then agreed upon,
for us to meet you.

We believed, that the things we had to
say, were of great importance to our Red Bre-
thren; and therefore it was that we requested to
see you together; that you all might have an
opportunity of hearing what we have to say.

Our hearts are filled with thankfulness to
the Great Spirit, that he has brought us safely
to the country of our Red Brethren, and pro-
tected us through our journey. We also rejoice
that he has given us this opportunity of seeing
you, and of taking you by the hand.

It is now a little more than two years since
your brothers of Baltimore

had an opportunity
of becoming acquainted with the Five Medals, the
Little Turtle, Tuthinipee, and some other chiefs.
