Johann Peter Frautschi informs his brother that he did receive the bill of exchange. He further tells him not to address newspapers to him since he leaves them at the post office. He states that he has no use for American newspapers and that his mother did not either. He believes that they are too secular. He says that organizations open and close their meeting with prayers, but that they capture poor people with their beguiling and misleading words.
