By a letter from one of our Members in
Ohio, we are likewise informed that the tools and
implements of husbandry which had been prepared for
Captain Lewis, and the Indians at Stoney Creek were
all delivered to them and are now in use, and that
these Indians had also continued firmly attached to the
white People, and such of them as were permited to re
main at home were busily engaged on their farms. He
also states that the Mill which had been nearly complet
ed at Waupaukanetta still remains unfinished on
account of the unsetled state of things in that country

Villages at Mohicken Johns Lake, since last yearly
Meeting, the care of these Indians had been commited

Allegahny Mountains
