President Young sir we are all well & a prospering health & a good spirit prevails through the camp all goes well with the gentry. Patsowet an influential Indian a brother of one that we killed came in yesterday and cut up high swells Brother Hunt will tell all about it I have made him our friend he says a great deal about Walkera coming in soon. There has a war party gone to day in pursuit of Wanship to retake those horses we marshaled ourselves yesterday and find twenty muskets in camp & no catterridges I wish you would send by Capt Hunt twenty rounds a piece for each gun if you think it best we will take care of ammunition we get but one bag of powder & no cattridges I think it would be good to have another bag if you please we fired the cannon once [illeg] it had a good effect there is quite a number of Indians in this vicinity they appear very friendly at present but they are very uncertain the weather is very warm & the river a reseding fast

Yours with respect D. B. Huntington
