D.D. Fishbank to Mrs. Francis Simmerwell

D.D. Fishbank to Mrs. Francis Simmerwell
Creator: Fishback, D. D.
Date: May 23, 1827
This letter, from D.D. Fishback to Mrs. Francis Simmerwell, addresses some of the problems faced by the missionaries at the Carney Mission, and indicates that the Baptist Female Charitable Society had raised $20 to help the missionaries "to Christianize, and civilize, the Heathen around you." The Carey Mission, which was located in present-day Michigan, was established along the St. Joseph river by Baptist missionary Isaac Mccoy and named for English Baptist missionary William Carey. The mission's primary task was educating the local Native Americans but it also served as a stopping point for American settlers as they headed west.
