Baltimore Yearly Meeting Indian Committee Minutes

Page out of 259

Our young men will upon all occasions advise
with thee upon the important objects of their visit
Thy willingness to promote our benevolent purposes
we have in time past fully proven, and have no
hesitation in believing that thy best exertions will
be used to further our views towards the Indians
any attention paid to our young men will be
particularly acknowledged by us, and whatever
expences may be incured through thy agency on
their and our account we will cheerfully pay

In a letter lately received from thee, we
notice a description of sundrey tools necessary for
the Indians, we are obliged for the information, the
season is now perhaps too far advanced for them
to be made and forwarded in time, to be useful
the present summer, we shall however not neglect
the information

We hope to receive continued proofs of thy
interest in our undertaking by the reception of
such accounts from time to time as may be in thy
power to furnish us

With our best wishes for thy welfare and the
welfare of our worthy young men, we remain with
sincere respect Thy friends
Signed on behalf of our committee on Indian
Concerns By
