    Peter writes (seemingly in response) to Weller regarding an unnamed orphan who has been mistreated in the area. He says that he has spoken to Mr. Stakey and Mr. Snyder, who knew nothing of the "Boy's care." He goes on to say that he went to a reforming Orphans Home and saw Mr. Graham, who "knew all about the case." He goes on to discuss two other orphans who have been mistreated, including one girl who was returned to the Home in the same clothes she left in and had not been to school. Letter marked Louisville, KY.
