The Lord keep you and me from falling into sin, is the prayer of
Your most obedient,
JOHN CAREY.

The following I received from the Rev. W. Case, in answer to my last:

York, 4th December, 1825.
Dear Brother, — I write you in haste to acknowledge your letter of 10th of November, and thank you for the interesting information it afforded. We were all much rejoiced to hear of the conversion of ten more of your nation, and of the perseverance of the Indian brethren. We are very desirous that you should make us a visit some time this winter or spring. There are a number of Ojebways at Belleville and the Bay Quinte, who would probably be profited as well as Mohawks. If you could be down in February we should like to send up with you a number of Ojebway boys; they are from nine to fifteen years old, and will be in from their hunting after January. If you can come, make your calculations to be at Bay Quinte by the 12th of February, and Belleville by the 19th, by which means we might have an opportunity of doing good to both Mohawks and Ojebways. The Mohawks have heard of the work at the Grand River, and I think are prepared to receive good. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * If you have time, translate and write out the Lord's prayer in Ojebway.
I would recommend you to teach the Lord's prayer and ten commandments to your people, and other sayings of Scripture.
The boys are old enough to come up on foot, but I should like them to have company. If you will write me at Kingston that you intend to come, I will have the boys ready.
Very affectionately your's in the love of Christ,
W. CASE.
P. S. — My kind and respectful regards to your parents and friends. Please inform me in your letter about the boy who came 100 miles to school.
