Abstract

This pamphlet played an important role in the expansion of Shakerism into the western states of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. It is in the form of a letter written to participants in the Kentucky Revival who attended the remarkable frontier camp meetings. Whether Youngs, Meacham and Bates carried printed or manuscript versions of the Letter, it remains the second earliest known written statement by the Shakers directed to the world.
