Title

Letter to the Baptist Orphans Home from N. A. Roys, June 17th, 1893.

Subject

Description

N. A. Roys writes to the Home regarding a girl he and his wife adopted last winter, Rosa McFarrian. He says that he wrote to Hollingsworth asking her to take Rosa back but has not heard from her. He asks what the charge would be to return her, and says that they should not have trouble re-homing her as she is good-looking and can play the organ. He says that she is not suited to him and his wife as she talks about them and does not like Joe Summers, their other adopted child (presumably from the Home). He states that they have had her for nearly 3 years and have had to stay at home with her. He continually states how miserable he and his wife are with Rosa. Letter marked Lovelaceville, Ballard County, KY.
