Philander Chase tells his nephew about the congregation at Robinsnest and about his financial problems-- his attempt to return the requested $1000 to the Church was rejected by the Board of Missions, and he is now trying to find a new way to get the money to them. He also updates Intrepid on the garden he started with the seeds Intrepid had sent him the year before-- an early frost has killed many of his crops, but he hopes the rest will survive.
