     On Jesse Holman's arrival in Indiana in 1811:
      "I had a small feather bed and some blankets which I had used while preparing my habitation. I scraped the snow from a part of the floor, and there laid the bed, and folded my wife and her babe in the blankets, then laid them on the bed, and wrapped it over them - cheered and encouraged the dear woman with the assurance that she should have all the comforts it was in my power to give - gave her lips and her heart all the warmth my kisses could impart - then secured my horses and sought the nearest habitation."

      Jesse Holman wrote two Circular Letters for the Northbend Baptist Association (NKY), the association with which his church aligned until there were enough Baptist churches in southern Indiana to form an association. He wrote many of the CLs for the Laughry Baptist Association of southern Indiana; some of his Circulars may be accessed below. - Jim Duvall
