August 12th, 1815

Editor's Note: Transcription of Letter from Seneca Indian, Lewis Langforde, s student at Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire, to J. Hyde, August 12, 1815. This Seneca Indian at Dartmouth recounts that he and two other Indians there are fine and happy. His letter at least offers the impression that he and the other two Seneca students who converted to Christianity, are pleased with their situation and with their progress in reading. This youth looks towards a future career as a missionary to his tribe.

[page 2 of August 12, 1815 letter]

…advancing. The scriptures shall soon be fulfilled, when
all the tribes, kindred, tongue, and nations shall know God from the least
to the greatest.
I shall soon return to my tribe to teach them the knowledge of christian religion.
The other letter which you received from the boys was written by me.
My respect to all Sachems.

Your friend,
Lewis Langford
