Excerpt from Diary of David Zeisberger, Vol. 2: A Moravian Missionary Among the Indians of Ohio
Saturday, 3. When last evening the brother of the Tawa chief with another man came here, and we heard that the chief lay with his people the other side of San dusky Bay, having nothing to eat, we collected several bushels of corn, also tobacco, and sent them to him and his people. He had been on the way to us, but could not get over the bay, the ice not being strong enough, and had to remain behind encamped there. We heard he was on his way to Sandusky to find out why the nations had not gone to the treaty, and will himself go there, having learned that they have not stood by the resolve of the Council of the Miami, but departed therefrom, though there they had all voted for peace. We still hope he can bring it to pass that there will be no open and general war.
Sunday, '4. David preached about the story of the mur der of so many innocent children in Bethlehem. Edwards held the congregation meeting.
