7125. QUAKERS, Indian civilization and.—

In this important work [Indian civilization ,] I owe to your Society an acknowledgment
that we have felt the benefits of their
zealous cooperation, and approved its judicious
direction towards producing among those people
habits of industry, comfortable subsistence,
and civilized usages, as preparatory to religious
instruction and the cultivation of letters.—
