vants, crossed the river to the mouth of Buffalo
creek, on their way home, proposing to take the
route of Albany. William Savery, and William
, agreed to return by water, with Gen.

Benjamin Wilson's. John Elliott, and John Par-
, went up the lake about eight miles, to look out
some Friends, there settled.

Col. Pickering and Gen. Lincoln, through the
whole of the journey, so far as I have seen, have
conducted as men of religion and sobriety.

we were heartily welcomed, and kindly entertained.
