In this letter to his wife, Robert Simerwell explains the Baptist Board of Missions decision regarding his efforts to educate Native Indians. Simerwell states that "the Board wish us to live by ourselves and teach a village school and not to board the scholars." In addition, Simerwell states that the Board would permit a "female missionary to accompany us to teach school" as "this is the plan they intend to adopt with all their missionaries."
