No date; from Frances Few Chrystie, Mary Chrystie's mother, to Reverend W. Tappan. A note with editorial corrections and suggestions made by Mrs. Chrystie in regard to a memoir the Reverend Tappan is writing about Mary; Mrs. Chrystie has made a couple of specific changes: changing "Mother" to "parents" and effacing the word "tyrannical" from the third page; she also urges the Reverend to place more emphasis on the love between Mary and her father and brother--if her brother William is not mentioned frequently in her journals, it is because she only began keeping a diary after Willie had left for school; Mrs. Chrystie supports the writing of this "memoir" so "that the simple Christian experience of my blessed child will lead some 'little ones' to Jesus that dear Saviour on whom she [Mary] reposed in life and in death."
