In this letter to T.L. Holman, Robert Simerwell discusses the conditions and attitudes of the people at the Carey Mission, Michigan Territory, in early 1829. Included are Simerwell's remarks on the attitudes of the Native American students at the mission, some of whom were "mourning over their lost and undone state" that had been signed away in the Treaty of Saint Joseph in September of 1827.
