ral years past, been endeavouring to follow the good
path which leads to everlasting happiness—and that
we experience, in degree, the love of Jesus Christ, who
died for such sinners as we are.

Sisters—We find that these friends, who gave us
many good counsels, are true men—so we believe, that
you are, also, our true Sisters in the Lord. There-
fore, we think, you Would be willing to hear from us,
who, though we are poor people, (commonly called by
many white people, Squaws,) we are rejoiced to find
that the 1 riends have such love, which makes no
distinction.

Sisters—We have religious meetings twice in
every week, to seek after the ways of the Good Spirit,
and have, at times, been comforted by him, who
searcheth all the hearts.

Although we never have seen any of you, yet let
us join hand in hand to serve the Lord Almighty,
who is able to put such weapons on our minds, to
withstand all the temptations of the evil one, and
that we may be able to hold out to the end, where
we shall join, to praise our Saviour to all eternity.
Farewell.

New-Stockbridge, 6 mo. 24th, 1797.
