Dated on the verso in Frances Chrystie's, her mother's hand(?): "Written.Feb.7.1836." Entitled "Prayer to God"; Mary prays for an "aimiable and benevolent" temper and for God to "soften our hard and stony hearts so that we may be brought to love thee and serve thee as we ought"; she also prays for the missionary cause and for the protection of those who leave home and have "gone to foreign lands and have taught the poor heathen natives the truth of the holy Bible."
