1809 9 mo & 2 of the week

In Compliance with
an appointment of the Yearly Meeting
cont. having the care of Indian affairs
I left Burlington

this afternoon to pay a
visit to the settlements of Friends among
the natives called Tunassassa and Cat
. Lodgd at Hannah Yarnalls
& altho both herself & James were fr
om home the Evening was passd very
pleasantly with the younger John
the Family who entertained me with
true Hospitality. My Mind has
for some Days past under considera
ble weight in the near approach of
our visitation in this Important
Embassy & this Day our bidding my
Friends farewell they were brought
very near to me and a precious
Evidence accompanied that we
loved one another--a recollection
whereof I trust will be as seals to
be recived to with encouragement
