Brothers—We hope that many of your people, will
be disposed to join our young men in taking
hold of the plough, the Hoe, the Axe, and other
implements of husbandry, so that the production
of the Earth under the blessing of the great Spirit
may be made abundant and the next Winter be
a winter in which your Cabbins may be filled with
plenty. Having nothing further to add at present

for the welfare of your chiefs and old men—your
young Men—your Women & your children
