*It must be evident, that if there be no equivalent for this word as contradistinguished from No. 7, there can be no translation of Mat. I, 18, and the parallel passages of Luke, &c., which will convey, to the Indian mind, the doctrine of the mystery of the incarnation. 

Transcription Notes:
Number seven (girl, or maid) corrected to "nunksqua" from "nunkoqua". (Trumbull, "Natick Dictionary", pg. 96) 11. "My mother" is likely "nokas" (Trumbull, "Natick Dictionary" pg. 297), but I hesitate to correct the transcription, as the handwriting is very unclear. 24. Ear is most likely "mehtauog", but the "t" is not crossed. (Trumbull, "Natick Dictionary", pg. 54)
