Description

Letter to Mr. Jno. Weller from Geo. A. Cubbage, Clerk for the Grayson County Clerk in Leitchfield, Kentucky. Mr. Cubbage writes that his uncle, Joseph Cubbage, has no small children and wishes to adopt a healthy boy at least nine years old. As his uncle is not able to go to the city on his own, Geo. A. Cubbage offers to visit the Home on his behalf a choose a boy. Miss Cilla Owen is said to know Mr. Cubbage, and he asks that a boy around ten years old be on hold for a week until he arrives. Mr. Cubbage's other uncle, Ed Thomas, also known as W. C. Evans, can be a reference to Jo Cubbage's character.
