Summary Among other concerns, Chapin mentions a quantity of powder and lead that is to be forwarded to his post. So far he has received some powder and flints but no lead. He hopes that they will not fail to arrive since they are articles needed by the Indians to go and pursue game. He is reassured that the Americans and English appear to be harmony at his quarter.
