Beyond Penn's Treaty

Visit to Oneida and Other Tribes of Indians

Page out of 262

Day last, we received a Letter
from Nicholas Schuisick

of the Tuscorora’s informing
that we need not go to Oneida
this Day, for their Chiefs in-
tended to come to us at Stockbridge,
we were at a loss to understand
the Motives for this Change in
the State of our Business; but
could readily perceive Patience
to be a very necessary Attainment
whilst we have any Concerns to
transact with these people;
We therefore concluded to wait
for their Reception at our Lodg-
ings; which we accordingly
did, but heard no more of them
