N. B. In the first place you will observe in our accts. many items of a backstanding date one or two of these were overlooked by me when I sent the last accts they are marked as being omitted, the others are accounts I found with individuals when I settled with them, it will be our desire to have all our expenditures fall into their respective quarters as far as possible for time to come – You find $18.93 cents for articles sold, this grows out of the smithery and for entertainment &c in addition to to which –

we have sold corn, flour, Cattle &c &c to the amount of about three hundred dollars, of this we keep a regular account on our books but would wish if consistant with the feelings of the board, to keep it so as to supply the mission with stock & when we go west if it would be agreeable to you, we see no inconsistancy in selling of stock & now and applying it for the same in the west all we have received in this way we have paid out so that we have none on hand – if this plan does not meet your approbation let us know and we will report it in our next quarters accounts.
