when he can be absent from home – The Claims

feel quite anxious to go & settle near our friends
at least see them once more – Have not seen a

we may be permitted to meet face to face our friends
on the other side of the Mountains – The Indians
at present are friendly to the Whites. A few days since
had a severe battle between them selves [themselves] – Two parties
seeing which should have an Indian Maiden about whom
