Rev. Ward is anxious to hear how Chase's cultivation of the Gilead settlement is going and entreats him to write in response. He hopes that Chase will be offered the position of Bishop of Michigan, and he again offers the labor of several Irishmen who are "bred to labour & industry," suggesting that they would arrive in the spring or summer. King William's College has been finished and Rev. Ward is building an eighth church.
