Documenting the Dakota: Baker & the Women's Foreign Missionary Society

On November 16, 1899, C.M. Jeffrey [?] of the Women’s Foreign Missionary Society in Toronto sent a letter to Lucy Margaret Baker.  Ms. Jeffrey had paid a visit to Lucy Baker at the reserve, and in the letter she inquires after some of the individuals that she met during her visit.  The letter also mentions the donation of clothing and other items for the use of the residents of the Wahpeton reserve, which were collected by members of the Presbyterian Church in the Eastern provinces and sent to Lucy Baker to distribute amongst the Dakota.
