Harriet Stubbs speaks of the joy and satisfaction of doing missionary work. She wishes she could return to the Wyandot Mission as an assistant teacher, knowing full well that it is not possible. Her soul "would take delight in it." Harriet asks how the children at the mission are doing with regard to reading and writing, in particular Maria and Eliza. She will write back to them if they send her letters. Sister (Rebecca) and "Mr. McLean" (John) send their love and are hoping that James will come to Georgetown for a visit when he attends General Conference. Sister would love to stay in Baltimore with Hannah during the conference. Harriet asks to be remembered to her friends Between-the-Logs and Mononcue. [Harriet is living in Georgetown, outside Washington City, with Rebecca and John McLean. John has been appointed to serve as United States Postmaster General]. Abstract Number - 690
