The first lecture gives an account of the Rev. Samuel Kirkland (1741-1808), missionary to the Oneida Indians, chaplain and interpreter to General Sullivan on his expedition against the Indian aligned with Great Britain in 1779, and founder of the school which became Hamilton College. This lecture expands into treating with the lives of some other early settlers, including Judge White of Whitestown. The second lecture is a continuation of the above, with particular notice of events of the American Revolution, General Herkimer, Oriskany, and the settlers of the late 18th century.
