Bear, then will your old men, your wives,
and your children, be happy and enjoy
the comforts of life, and you will look
on your flocks your fields and your fruit
trees with contentment and pleasure-
Brothers and Sisters we are young men
and can't say a grat deal to you but we
intend to send an account how you
are coming on to our elder brethren in

listen to their talk

We commend you to the care of the
Great Spirit and are your friends
and brothers
