In this letter to Noah Davis, Robert Simerwell explains that the Carey Mission, Michigan Territory, will soon be abandoned as a Baptist mission. In fact, Simerwell states that "our labours at this place are almost at a close, our premises will be valued 1st Sep. when our posessary right will cease." Simerwell also tells Davis that he has spoken with Isaac McCoy who had been assured "by the President and the Sec. Of War that our Denomination shall receive a liberal patronage from Gov" which Simerwell hopes will allow them to continue their missionary work among the Indians.
