Mary Caroline Ward informs Philander Chase of a doctor interested in the appeals and his efforts, and asks him to pray for her and her friend.




Mary Caroline Ward, doctor, appeal


to take an interest in such things and thinking that hopefully he might be able to give circulation to some of the Appeals: If therefore 56 Wimpole Street Dr. [Mayo] should call upon you. You will [r]eceive him as introduced to you by me. And he will be interested in hearing particulars of your plans, which [it] was not [possible] in the little moment I had to speak about it, for me to explain. I promised him an appeal but I am very sorry to say he went away without it, but I shall send him one in a day or two and after [?] I think he will call upon you as [Mr. Wiggin]. Will you remember me and my dear suffering friend in your prayers. I believe in the promises to prayer and I ask yours, believing they will bring us a blessing - how dark the hour of suffering must be where the light of the Gospel is unknown. Pray that its brightest beams may shine now upon us - and believe me ever very dear Bishop Chase. Your most affectionate with gratitude and respect - Mary Caroline Ward
