Gorham and Phelps–That they were met by Mr. Phelps and the principal inhabitants of Conadoque, four miles from that place, and conducted into town –That they were highly gratified with the treatment they received, and with the manner in which they had disposed of their lands.–The gentleman further informs, that there is now about 3000 inhabitants in the above county, and that the land is of a good quality.
