hand, adds to the certainty and value of these performances ; and the more so, as I have reason to believe that he neither made nor kept another copy. I find, too, from my former travels and late tour, that the Shawanese tongue is the root of many others of the more western tribes.

A Vocabulary and Grammar of the Delaware language is made by the Rev. Mr. Zeisberger, which, if your Excellency hath not obtained, I will procure and send to you. They are all at present in my son's possession, except our Lord's prayer, as I gave them to him when he entered a cadet in the first United States' regiment; but I will write to him immediately for them, if your Excellency wishes to have them. I do myself the honor to inclose our Lord's prayer, as I brought it here with intention to publish it, to prevent its being lost. When your Excellency has had a copy taken, be pleased to direct the original to be forwarded, inclosed in my letter, to Mr. Carey.

I have the honor to be, with perfect respect, your Excellency's most obedient, humble servant,

GEORGE MORGAN.
