Letter to W. L. Weller from Carrie Posey, July 24th, 1894.

Subject

Description

Sallie Crawford writes to the Home on behalf of Carrie Posey, a woman interested in adopting a girl 12 years old. She states that the Poseys are "quite a clever family of people," are a family of four "all grown," and have a "lovely country home." Crawford ends the letter asking if the Home has "any more 'Callies.'" It seems that the Crawfords adopted a girl named Callie from the Home that was kind and "now a young lady." Letter marked Corydon, KY. In a letter from 24 July 1894, Posey writes to say that she cannot "give the young girl a home." She states that her 71 year old mother objects to the adoption, and hopes that the Home is not inconvenienced. Letter marked Corydon, KY.
