In the 1720s, Conrad Weiser moved with his family to Pa. where James Logan regularly employed Weiser as an agent and interpreter. Trader, colonel in the French and Indian War, first president judge of Berks Co. and founder of Reading, a monk at the Ephrata Cloisters, pillar of the Lutheran Church, statesman, woodsman—all part of a long and distinguished career . . . but it was his work as an Indian agent that made him famous. He went everywhere, met almost everyone, saw everything, and recorded it in his valuable journals. (664pp. index. 2014 reprint of 1945 edition. Wennawoods Pub.)
