Description

Lizzie Hensley writes to the Home regarding her two children, Fannie and Thomas. She states that they were in the Home Mission at Henderson, but when she asked about them, was told that they were sent to Louisville. She says the mission told her they would not send the children away without notifying her, and her "lawyer says [she] can make it hat for them." She says she is "agreeving [herself] to death about them" and lives at 939 Div St, Evansville, IN. Letter marked Evansville, IN. In a letter from 27 July 1894, Hensley thanks the Home, because her children were there and can be sent home soon. She asks if the Home needs witnesses or proof that the children are hers, and asks when she can take them home. Letter marked Evansville, IN. In another letter from 3 August 1894, Hensley thanks the Home for their kind letter and says that she will get the papers "fixed up" and send for the children. Letter marked Evansville, IN. In a letter from 27 Sept 1894, Hensley says that she has been sick and unable to write or meet the children. She asks that Weller watch the children awhile longer until she is well enough to meet them. Letter marked Evansville, IN.
