Seventh Letter to the Committee 8th mo. 22 - 99
Dear friends

We have had no accounts from
you since your letter of the 4th mo. 13th which
accompanied the Articles you sent us, all of
which we received agreeably to the Invoice en
closed. We feel solicitous in the prosecution
of our present engagement to be preserved under
the direction of best wisdom, and also to act agree
ably to your council; yet upon serious delibera
tion on the Subject you propos'd of the Indians
sending their Children to our village to be
instructed in School Learning we are again
free to suggest to you that we believe it will
afford the most general satisfaction, & be most
advantageous to the Indians for the School
to be kept at the lower village, while three suita
ble persons are stationed in this quarter, as
the Children are mostly there and but little
hopes of them comeing nearer to us – But
the prospect of one of us returning this Fall will
probably prevent the School being kept at
