Extract of a Letter wrote by the Daughter, and
Sent by Joshua Evans to two of his Daughters Brothertown 7 mo 3rd 1796

Friends -- Priscilla and Margaret Evans
You will accept a letter from one you never
saw; I have seen your Father, and me thinks he loo-
ks Like one of the good old saints, that was to Prea-
ch the Gospel to the ends of the Earth, and a fri-
end to all People, especially to the Indians, and
he is now in one of the Towns. But as I never
have had any acquaintance with either of
you, I cant express myself, but I hope that if it
is the will of the all wise being, it might be for some wise

but I must close my Letter, by Subscri-
bing myself your ever faithful, the unknown
Friend. Gracy Crosly
