discouragements which you have had to encounter

Brothers! I believed the building of a mill was the
best thing you can do for my people, I have therefore
asked it of you; I think it will encourage them to
raise large crops of corn & perhaps wheat, and it will
certainly afford a great convenience to those who
reside in the neighbourhood of my Village

Brothers! I cannot omit again expressing to you my
thanks- I shall carry your words home & repeat
them to my people.
