Folder 32 Charles Nisbet to Alexander Addison, January 26, 1786

Nisbet confirms the receipt of Addison's letter and acknowledges Addison's relocation to Pittsburgh. He makes negative comments about the frontier, the average pioneer, and the threat of Indian war. He discusses news from abroad, especially the threat of Algerines [Algerian pirates]. Addison also disparages Spanish civilization and encourages alliances between government and clergy.
