According to the March 25, 1853, issue of The Alabama Baptist, a letter from Martha Crawford, missionary to China, was printed. In it she shared about starting a school for girls. The first class had nine girls ranging in age from six to 12. Only one had ever been in any kind of school before. A boys’ school led by Mr. Crawford was planned for opening after the Chinese New Year.
