I am alone at this place waiting to accom-
pany Jasper Parrish to Williams burgh
in the morning, in order to meet Captain
. My companion being gone
about 4 miles forward this evening to
wait upon some Men about the sale of
our mare they having agreed to purchase
her for £40, upon the proviso that
she will draw which is to be tried
to morrow morning.

We hope to get in the neighbor-
hood of Cannondarque to morrow
evening and perhaps in about three
days more to Oneida.

I am with love your friend
John Peirce
