Minutes of the Committee on Indian Concern No 1

Page out of 174

Gore of the land in the Oneida South Settlement,

that they had attended to the subject & that the
Legislature had enacted a law prohibiting the
sale of the land referred to.

Josiah Field

and Willet Hicks were
appointed to examine the Treasurer's Accounts
& report a statement thereof to our next Meeting

It appearing probable that in consequence
of the indisposition of Absalom Hatfield

considerable attention would be requisite to the
concerns of the Indians; and that there would
be a necessity of obtaining the assistance of
some Friends in their vicinity who are not
of the Committee, the Clerk was directed to unite
to Peleg Gifford, Abrm Bradbury & Ackus
on behalf of this Committee & request
them to afford Joseph Frost such aid as
may appear to be needful.
