Cherokee Phoenix and Indians' Advocate
Wednesday, March 18, 1829
Vol. II, no. 1
Page 2, col. 2b

     We have seen a letter from the Choctaw nation, which states
that the prospects of religion among that people are encouraging,
particularly at Ai-ik-Hun-na, a missionary station under the care
of the American Board of Foreign Missions.  Quite a number, it is
hoped have passed from death unto life.  What is still more
encouraging is, two of the principal chiefs, Col Folsom and Col
Leflure, have taken a decided interest in the religious
prosperity of their people, and are using their efforts to
promote their moral improvement.  The seed sown during eleven
years is beginning to spring up.  "In due time ye shall reap if
ye faint not."
