Description

Most items are undated, but all were written after Mary Chrystie's death in 1842. Notes from Mary Chrystie's mother, Frances Few Chrystie, and aunt, Mary Few, describing their grief over Mary's death and memorializing her life. The most significant item (item 2) is a hagiography of Mary Chrystie, written by her mother and father. The document is a brief but detailed biography, including many anecdotes that portray Mary as gentle, loving, and pious throughout her short life. The hagiography has been transcribed and a typescript is available in Eric Johnson's notes at Seeley Mudd Manuscript Library.
