Blearnphleml Sketch •€ a Neteel Man In
PeaeeylvMla Prevlaclal History.



[We are indebted to John W. Jordan,
Esq., of Philadelphia, for the sketch and
documents, which follows, concerning one
<d the most interesting personages in the



early history of Northampton county and of
the8tate.]

Or the few members of the Moravian
Chnrch who figure in the political history of
Pennsylvania prior to the present century,
William Edmonds of Northampton County
ranks next to William Henry, of Lancas t er,
in poiot of service and influence. He was
born October 24, 1708, at Coleford, in the
parish of Newland, hnndredof St. Bria veils,
Gloucestershire, England, and was baptised
in the Anglican Chnrch. His father, who
was a merchant of the town, gave him a
liberal education and afterwards apprenticed
him to a white leather tanner in Monmouth.
In 1786 he emigrated to New Tork, where he
continued his trade until 1747. Therein
1741 he became acquainted with the Mora-
vians, attended their meetings and in 1744
was admitted to their communion. After
the death of hie first wife in 1747, he re-
moved to Bethlehem, and in 1748 made a
voyage to Holland and England in the ca-
pacity of cook in the Irene, the first trans-
port vessel built by the Moravian Chnrch in
America. On bis return he repaired again
to Bethlehem, where he was employed first,
in the tannery, then at the Ferry. In 1754,
he was appointed to succeed 8am uel Powell
the first storekeeper of the Chnrch store,
which was located on Market 8treet opposite
the graveyard. This store was opened by
the Moravians in the summer of 1753 for
the benefit of their "Economy," and was

Kobably the first, erected in the Forks of
Blaware.

William Ed mood's entry into political life
dates from October of 1754, when ha served
as Inspector of Election for Bethlehem town-
ship, When James Bornside, a Moravian,
was elected assemblyman by 443 votes. At
the ensuing election he was elected by 821
votes to represent Northampton county in
the assembly, but owing to an informality
In the returns (for which the sheriff subse-
quently apologised by letter to the assembly),
he was not sworn in for several days. He
took an active part in the deliberations of
the session and served on all the principal
committees—Indian Affairs, Finance and
Military. In 1758, be was elected township
assessor. The outbreak ef the Indian war
(1755) made the position of political affairs
particularly trying to the Moravians. It was
well known that they were averse to bearing
arms, and that they regarded offensive war-
fare as incompatible with the teachings of

the religion of Jesus Christ; their mission
among the aborigines wss nnpopolar with
that class of whites who were interested in
their degradation, and they were denounced
as being in league with the savages in the in-
terest* of the French. From prndeutial
reasons, they largely abstained from voting
at the election of 1756. William Allen was
elected to succeed Edmonds, but having also.
been returned for Cumberland county, be
chose to represent the latter. The following
letter of the Rev. William 8mith, later Pro-
vost of the University of Pennsylvania, ad-
dressed to Mr. Vernon, at fcaston, is not in-
appropriate in this connection.

Philadelphia, October 15, 1756.
Mb. Vernon.

It gave us all great Pleasure to find you
return Mr. Allen as your Representative,
but as he was engaged before for Cumber-
land he was obliged in Honour to stand for
that County. I snppose Edmonds will en-
deavour with all his might to get in, but I
hope the County will never disgrace itself by
putting in any Moravian whose principle
for ought we know may be Popish. They
are against Defence and you know even re-
fused to sell Powder to Protestants tho' it is
said they furnished the Indians with it
How true these Things are you know best,
but it would be a Shame to Rend down a
Moravian at such a dangerous Time. You
should chase some Man of Weight who can
serve you with the Government when you
want any Thing in Philadelphia. We have
therefore tbo't that no Person would be so
it as Mr. Plumsted. He is known in yonr
County, has Lands in it, and is a very
honest Man and can be of great use to the
County. I hope you will support him with
all your Interest, and get all your ffr'ds
to join you. It happens luckily
that A|r. Plumsted sets out to-morrow
on Business for Cedar -Creek and will be
at Bastou. For Ood's-8ake stir ) ourselves
for without we get Men in the Assembly who
will defend the Country we shall soon be
rained. The Qaaker Deputies from Eng-
land hays obliged three of the Chester Mem-
bers and one for Bucks to resign, so th«t we
have a phaooe of Four good Men In their
stead, and I hope One for your County will
make Jive. Do not mention my name to
any Body nor show this letter to any except
it be tei Mr. Parsons, to whom I send my
Complements and need not write to him as
Mr. Piers has done it this Morning.



I am glad to hear that old Quarrels are
forgot, I have by desire wrote to Mr. Gordon
to go up and uss his Interest, and hope you
will all stick to one another for the sake of
jour Country, forgetting every other Differ-
ence.

In enclose you Three of an excellent Paper
which you may make a proper use of, and
remain your ffriend to serve you,

William Smith.

William Edmond's position as storekeeper
at Bethlehem, brought him in contact with
the Indian chieftains passing and repassing
throngh that town to the capital of the Pro-
vince, and through his personal acquaintance
and influence with them, between the years
1756 and 1758 his services were in constant
request in behalf of the Province. In Jan-
nary of 1756, he accompan ; ed Franklin, who
was engaged in erecting the chain of forts
for the protection of the frontier, between
the Delaware and the Susquehanna, and in
July we find him one of the Commissioners
to the treaty at Easton>~ Bethlehem had been
suggested by the Governor, but the Indians
insisted on Baston as originally agreed npon
— and to which he bad personally escorted
Captain Newcastle. After the treaty he es-
corted the Indians to Fort Allen. During
the years 1757 and 1758, he frequently es-
corted Teedyuscung and other Chiefs to Phil-
adelphia, or was called thither for his advice
on Indian affairs.

The Bethlehem store hal been during
these troublesome years the source from
which the Province had drawn its supplies
and presents for the Indians. The adjust-
ment of these accounts also frequently called
Mr. Edmonds to the capital, but their settle-
ment was deferred — "no pay until the Pro-
vince has more money" — for some years. In
the following letter, the old storekeeper ex-
plains some of the transactions, of which
there had been apparently some criticism :

Hereby I welcome you to Bethm from your

Next, I have heard among the many Asper-
sions against the Brethren that they were so
Penurious in charging the Provjnc* for In-
dians, that they set down J Pints of milk,
etc. As to which (though I delivered all tho
former Accts, to the£ommissrs) I cannot Ab-
solutely say there was so much charge among

Ordered them Belief. The Brethren also
set them to Work, so that what was ex-
pended on them, over and above what they
Earned by Grabbing, making Baskets, chop-
ping Wood, Washing, etc, in the Provincial
Accoaots, did not for each Amount to 1}<L
per Diem throagh the Whole — there were
old Men 4b Women that were past much
Labor 4b also Young Children. But such a
Number, with many more ordered by the
Board of Commissioners to Bethm after the
Treaties, to be sure cost a Great Deal The
latter of which the Brethren often desired
might be moved, .as it gave them great
Trouble to look after them; But for the
Assistance that was Giveo for them others
that Work'd, the Brethren were thankfull.
Too* in the meantime their Timber was
Damag'd by making baskets, firewood 4bc
Yet they *ere glad io hopes, the Gospell
would take more 4b more root in their hearts.
Now what remains, God knows all things.
But to be sure they were as I said once
much cheaper to the Province than the wild
ones that was kept a treaties 4b in the State
house at Phila From Yours
