Death of Samuel Darch, 1814. — Extract from letter of James
Pembertou Parke, Second Street, 3 mo. 15, 1814.

"When I left Philadelphia, I had no idea that Samuel Darch was
dangerously ill, but he has fiiUen a victim to typhus fever, and this
morning I followed his remains to the grave, which were attended by a
number of respectable citizens, the Wa.shington Benevolent and other
Societies of which he was a member. He was buried in the Free-
Quaker ground, the use of which is granted, I understand, to the Uni-
tarian Congregation, to which he belonged ; and James Taylor read a
moral lecture ..."

Dk. Anxa Cali.omhil.

It has not boon forgotfulness of my word, that thou ha.st not hoard
from me about y"^ receipt thou didst desire »!i I prorae.^sed ; for tlioro is
no need of a pocket book to remember me of thee & thyn, fr«r you are
dayly fresh in my memorial upon y'' best account, & will, while I have
a being here. But I received it but yesterday, & by reason of my pre-
cngairements in visits & business, my time was not enough my own to
Soul it thee. It came from y^ Earl of Liece^ters, one of y'^ most curious
family's in the nation for Conservatorys of fruit tfcc. I wish y' direc-
tion prove in practice, successfull, & could I have procured any in
town from Spain or Portugal, had sent some, but thos from Tohniso in
france were the best I ever eat, w""" y^ war forbids, now D. Anna, give
my endeared love to thy D'' Husband, & virtuous Daughter, and my
Daughters also, & accept of the same thy self, from him yt is
with a ti-uc regard,

my love to thy Relations, Thy affect, assured Friend

&'to frds. as free. ' W^' Pkxx.

A Eeceipt hoiv to Dry Applet, Paires, Fluim, d'C.

Choose y^ largest Pippins, yt are not bruised, and lay as many as you
can, one by one, upon sives ; then put them in y" oven, after y" house-
hold bread is drawn, & there let them lye till next morning, when they
are taken out squeeze them with your hands, to flatt them, as you think
of itt ; and tm-n them upon y'^ same sives, and putt them into y" oven
again, but lett the tire be more slack then y^ first time, yt is, a weaker
heat, do so 3 or 4 times, & yt is enough : but yt is left to discretion as
the fruit appears more or less dryed. when dryed they must be layd on
shelves, one by one, & in moist weather let a chafing dish or 2 of Coals
be sett pretty neer them, w'^'' prevents moulding. Do this with all sorts
of pairs good to eat, biit ^V Johns, Boncretians, wardens themselves,
or any winter paire is best.

Plums likewise are done this way, with less heat because their skin is
thiner ; y^ Largest are best for this way of eating ym. So any fruit,
not to be dryed w* Sugar, proportioning y^ fire to y" nature of \' fruit.
Thus figgs may be dryed without Sugar, & may finde ym as good as any
from abroad, you may also dry Peaches & Aprecocks this way, only
Slitt them, & putt a little Sugar into y* hollow, laying them w'" their
hollows uppermost ; but they are apt to be toughish. If the oven be at
any time hett on purpose, it must not be more then to bake manchets,
or french bread if to yt degree.

From Nazaeeth to the Delaware Water Gap ix 17-IS. — T!ic
following entries have been taken from the note-book of three Moravian
clergymen. The route which they followed can now be taken witii-
out any of the difficulties which befell them, and much of the forest
has long since given place to cultivated fields. The scenery is very
attractive :

ITJfS. December 5. — Set out from Nazareth, Northward, thnnigh the
woods for Meniolagauieka, an Indian tov.n of five huts, on the Pocopoco
creek, north of the Blue Mountains [in now Monroe County]. It is
the sole surviving Indian town in this neighborhood. The descent ot
the Blue Mountains on the Indian side, we found so trying as to be
scarcely able to make it, even on foot, and had much trouble to get our
two horses dov,u. One of them was mired in a bog near the creek, and
with difficulty was extricated. Having crossed the creek we s'xjii came
to the town and were cordially welcomed into the Captain's hou.-^e.
We visited in the other huts, and were given some Indian cakis baked

in the ashes. Later we ?et to cooking and preparinir what provisions
we liad brought with Us^, and treated all present. Slept well on the
deer skins spread tor us.

Dtccmbir 6. — Breakfasted at'ter our lashiou, and shared with the In-
dians. Then our host reciprocated, preparing for us a special dish
from pounded maize, which we relished. On setting out the Captain's
brother accomjianied us for a disiauce into the woods, and had we been
without a guide for the first few miles would certainly have lost the
way. We were much impeded by swamps and bogs.

About 4 P.M. we came to an Indian hut, about 12 miles from Jlenio-
lagameka, where we were served with bear's meat, wild honey, and
Sequate, a preparation of maize. At night slept soundly on the bear
skins spread out for us.

December 7. — Breakfosted on bear and Sequate. Our host led the
way through the pathless woods for fifteen miles. At 2 p.m. we reached
Dansbury and stopped at McMichaels. He was not at home. Went
three miles further to Daniel Brodheads, where we were received cor-
dially, and had much discourse with him about the Indians, lie had
been an Indian trader but was now a Justice of the Peace.

December 8. — Left Brodhead's and came to the Gap in the moun-
tains, through which the Delaware runs.

KOTTEF.DJLM, 5=^ Aprill, 1709.

M^^ .ToHX HexPvY Spkogell,

J was not a little grieved to hear that after all yo' trouble and pains
in the voyage home, you were in yo'' voyage outward bound to Virginia
yo'' Ship and Cargo was burnt by the French. But much more am I
grieved to hear of yo'' unrighteous, unchristian & ungrateful behaviour
to & treatment of those two young men from whose parents & Relations
you received so Signall and unparralelled Kindness while here. And
that being a mere Straingor, upon M' Lidborrow's & my testifying being
s that you seemed to us to be an honest ]\lan of a Sober Conversa-
tion which we were the more Inclined to believe Because we Know yo'
Education to have been such & had never seen or heard anything to
the Contrary.

But little did I think it was with au Intent to trust you or to let you
