discourage us, he also says that all the Indians he was

As it appears that the Indians are still desirous
of friends continueing their care towards them and of
our sending a person to take the place of Philip Dennis

to procure one or more suitable offer to agree with them
and call on the Treasurer for the expences that may
be incured
