Description

Letter to W. L. Weller & Sons from unknown person. Their name is not signed on the letter, but they are presumably related to T. R. Givens from the name on the letterhead. Givens writes to the Home saying she wants a boy instead of a girl, but still around ten years of age. Givens writes that she is a member of the M. E. Church and has two children, one nineteen years old and the other sixteen months. She says that she is forty-five years old, and her husband is forty seven. She lists four references: Mrs. Ludale La Rue, Mr. Hill Buchanan, Mrs. Hugh L. McElroy, and Mr. [Huron?] Harris. All are in Union County, Flournoy, Kentucky. Givens also writes that she will apply for a boy in Cincinnati if she doesn't receive a boy from the home.
