From a Tuscaro Indian

1801Dear Friends,

We are all well and glad to see the three
Girls and our friend Joseph Clark, We often think of the
kindness you shew’d us.

Our Nation more plough their
Land, and raise more Cattle, and build some new houses.
Our Nation increase and raise more flax and we spin
a little, and we hope by the assistance of the Great good Spi
rit we grow in his favour so as to have plenty of Corn Cattle and
Flax; and become his Children and rest in his Kingdom.
I feel much love in mine heart but am not able to
express myself-

Peter Okasantque
