~~~~~ About fourteen teams were elected to haul lumber from Watonga the nearest railroad town for Bird Seward last Monday. Bird is a ex-Carlisle student and stays at home during the busy season to turn the earth like the almighty eastern whiteman. Everybody will be glad to see him live in a good house, raise chickens, hogs, cattle, and big bushels of corn and perhaps some sheep.

DEAR FRIEND: - Perhaps you have been waiting for me to subscribe to the INDIAN HELPER. I like the INDIAN HELPER very much but Clara takes it so she would let me read her HELPER. It is of no use to get two INDIAN HELPERS in one family. But I promise the Man-on-the-band-stand to subscribe twenty cents for two years when I go back to Carlisle.
I am getting along pretty well since I came here. Like my place very much. I have such a nice small farm here among the white people.
A good many Indians are around here where I live and they often visit me. You ought to see us together. We have a most delightful time this afternoon, Samuel Dion, Bird Seward, Otto wells and I took a walk down the beautiful river. As we went on the road they were making so much fun and we all laughed so much I can't hardly laugh. We never had so much fun as that before.
THOS. BLACK BEAR.
May 17, 1889 INDIAN HELPER
A friend writes to the M. 0. T. B. S., that he fears she is too far off to see what is going on in Bucks County. She is not very well asquainted with the old fellow if she thinks he is like some other people, a trifle near-sighted. But the tidings are just as welcome. “I thought I would write him about our two boys,” she says, “as he recently had good reports from two of his girls. So, I’ll tell you just a little that I have seen. I see they try to do their best and keep in a good humor.
When they come into the house they are always careful to be neat and clean, willing to assist me if the meal is not quite ready, by carrying and going for such things as I need, in fact, assisting me in many ways, as I have no girl. It has been said the Indian youth are favorites in the house generally. Is it any wonder when they are generally so polite and willing? I saw one as he was walking through one field to another pull an armful of weeds that were going to seed. Don’t you suppose we appreciate that? They are good to the animals and pleasant with the children. The two boys referred to in this letter are Benajah Miles and Bird Seward.
