Quinn writes to Hollingsworth in regard to a little girl she is in the process of adopting. She asks if she should send the bond to the Home, and also includes instructions for delivering the girl.

She later refers to the girl as Elly, and explains the lengths she has gone to formalize this adoption. Letter marked Sturgis, KY.
