Kanickhungo - Seneca Chief
Because we are old, it may be thought that the memory of
things may be lost with us, who have not, like you, the art
of preserving it by committing all transactions to writing.
We nevertheless have methods of transmitting from father
to son an account of all these things. You will find the remembrance
of them is faithfully preserved, and our succeeding generations
are made acquainted with what has passed, that it may not
be forgot as long as the earth remains.
