    Ms. Whitworth writes to the Home regarding two of her three children-- two boys aged 10 and 12 and one girl aged 13. She is "bad sick" and her husband has been dead for two years, and she wants to drop the boys off at the Home. Her daughter had the measles five years ago and "it made a cripel i girr of her for life," so she wants to keep her; she requests repeatedly that the boys be kept together and that she be allowed to visit them and send gifts and clothing. Letter marked Lewisbart, Louback Co., KY. "My Dear Sister" is presumably referencing Miss Mary Hollingsworth.
