In this letter to George W. Martin of the Kansas State Historical Society, Mahalah Jay of Richmond, Indiana, discusses her early life in Kansas. According to Jay, her parents came to Kansas in 1837 to help open the Quaker's Shawnee Mission on the outskirts of what later became Kansas City. Jay states that "my own memory though then only a child holds in stone many an incident of that pioneer work." Most importantly, Jay tells Martin that she can provide a good deal of information on their lives and their work.
