We're now pleased to let you know that all 25 items in this collection have now been scanned and added to our exhibit site.

You can browse the whole collection on the exhibit site, or use the finding guide on our main website to go directly to a specific item.

Items include letters from Catharine to her missionary friends and some to her family, but they are primarily about Catharine immediately following her death. There are many letters from Moody and Isabella Hall, Laura and William Potter, and Dr. Alexander Campbell. There is an excerpt of Catharine's personal journal (copy of original) from 1820-1822 included.
