Hannah Barrett (student at the Wyandot Mission School, part Wyandot?) writes to let Finley know that she has been visiting family members. During the visit, she was interrogated on the subject of ________. She told them she would tell them all about it before going home. Some of the family told her they hoped she would never go back to "that wretched place" to be killed by "indeans." She responded "No, they know me too well to kill me." It appears that the "subject" is William Walker, Jr. (part Wyandot, taught school at the mission). She eventually shares the news about her impending marriage to Walker. Hannah issues an invitation to Finley to attend the wedding. [Note: Wedding took place on April 8, 1824]. Abstract Number - 30
