entrusted with the care of assisting Absalom were

considerable uneasiness exists amongst the Oneidas
of the South Settlement relative to a gore of land

of Indians of the other part, and by them sold

that the land may be sold to & settled by white
people to their great injury; in that they solicited
the care of Friends for their relief; the subject
was referred to Richard Mott, Willet Hicks, Matthew
, Samuel Parsons, John Murray & John
; who are desired to give attention thereto.
