Description

C. G. Jones writes to the Home regarding a half orphan who is staying with his aunt, Mrs. Lillie Botts, at 722 Garrett St. The boy is 7 years old, his mother is dead, and his father is a laborer who is "away from home all day." He says that "the Catholics are making a strong effort to get him, and it is fond by his relation that his father will turn him over to them if nothing else can be done." He asks how the boy can be gotten into the Home and when. Letter marked Covington, KY.
