MONTANA INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL FOR CROW INDIANS
ALANSON A. SPENCER, SUPERINTENDENT
Boston, Mass., March 21 1891
Mrs Emeline V. Ward,
I thank you most
cordially for your contribution of
Ten Dollars to our Montana Indian
School. I do not believe our Unitarian
body is any where doing a more
useful, hopeful, & blessed work than
in this mission school. The change
wrought in the Indian boys & girls by
six months subjection to the civilizing,
industrial, & religious influences brought
to bear on them, is most encouraging.
As you request that your
contribution shall simply be credited in
the Register to "A Friend", I will see that it is
done. Thanking you again for your help. Sincerely Yours

Indian schools were often sponsored by churches. The Montana Industrial School for Crow Indians received support from the American Unitarian Association. These mission schools were designed to "de-Indianize" the Native children and to introduce them to Christian religion through education. This letter thanks Emmeline V. Ward for her anonymous contribution of ten dollars.
