Subject

Description

Judge Joshua Naylor writes a strongly worded letter to the Home regarding Netta, an 18 year old adoptee from the area. He says that Weller misinterpreted his previous letter, and that there is no way that Netta would want to go back to the Home, as she is old enough to take care of herself. He also says multiple times that he does not approve of the envelope that Weller used in his letter, which was labeled W. J. Weller and Son Wholesale Liquor dealers." He asks for Weller to send him the information on Netta's birth mother, and that she wants to visit the Home soon to retrieve the information. Letter marked Fulton Co., Hickman, KY.
