take the liberty to observe, that the present is
a very favourable time, to put in execution their
benevolent views, towards the distressed natives
of this land; and that much good may be done
on the Wabash, by sending one or two suit-
able men to reside amongst the Indians, and
teach them how to raise stock, and cultivate the
earth. Witness what Philip Dennis

amongst them the last year. At a station where
he had every thing to begin, there are now at
least four hundred hogs and twenty cows; and
the Indians at no village in this country live so
comfortably, as those at that place. If this spirit
of industry is kept alive for a few years, it will
certainly have a powerful influence upon the
minds of the Indians at many of the neighbour-
ing villages. The Indians have lately concluded
a treaty with the United States, which has
settled all their jarring interests.
