Description

Letter to W. L. Weller from J.M. Eades in Nebo, Kentucky, who writes in response to Weller's earlier letter confirming he will adopt Charlie Aulick and will fill blank checks upon their arrival to him. Eades prefers Charlie to be apprenticed so Eades can teach him how to farm. Eades is also a deacon at the Baptist Church in Pleasant Grove, Hopkins County. All his other children are girls and he needs a boy to assist him in his old age.
Eades writes to Hollingsworth again regarding Charlie. He asks for her to send information on Charlie's father, who is now 15 years old and "plenty larg enough to work." He says "he is a very bad boy wont mind and sets worse." He says that he is so bad he doesn't want to turn him back to the Home, but wants to send him back to his father. He states that in December, his house burned down and his wife is very sick. Letter marked Madisonville, KY.
