This secretarial letter is marked "Duplicate" in the top margin of the first page. Content largely centers on relations with the Indians in Penn's extensive domain. In small part: "I am sensible of the great advantage we have gained by Teedyuscung's declaring he has no claim on any Lands, but those between Tohickon Creek and the Kittochtinny Hills...You say there are very few Lands any Indians can complain of, but what may easily be settled, I know of none, but this of the Delawares, which now lyes by Petition of Mr. Franklin before the King in Council...we must insist on the terms of the Deed..." Pages 3/4 tipped in, small pencil notation. Excellent condition overall. Ex. Henry E. Luhrs Collection.
