I have had with your people. the Friends at
Oneida are very kind to us, as well as to the rest of
the Indians; they have given very good advice to
the Indian Tribes, and the Brothertown in a
special manner, have received very good advice
from these three Brothers living here, and I am
very thankful for it, and I bless God that has
seen fit to bring these our Dear Brothers Henry
, Jacob Taylor, & Jonathan Thomas,
have among us poor Indians, to teach us the path
of peace, and I hope the good Spirit will bless
them for it.

But I must conclude my letter, by saying
my Husband gives his love to your Husband and
the rest of your Family, and Gracey gives
her Love.

I bid you farewell and remain
your Sister in the Lord Loruhamah Crosley
