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."
