them and occasionally Represent their case to

--which has the power to order out
from amongst them--such as should be represented
as improper persons to reside amongst them and
to see that Existing Laws against selling ardent spi-
rits or bartering Whisky with them were put
in force or prevail with Government (which
I should esteem most advisable) to appoint some
judicious Agent to constantly reside in their
vicinity whose business it should be to recognise
all abuses of good order from the Whites--and

position of this Nature would be well recieved
by our Government as well as be very grateful
to the better sort among the Poor Indians

I am with every Sentiment of
Esteem & Affection to
thee & Dear Hannah E.
