Title

Letter to W. L. Weller from S. B. Worwood, December 9th, 1894.

Subject

Description

Worwood writes to Weller to say that he thinks it would be best for him to pick out a child from the Home himself, so he is going to wait until spring to come to the Home. He says that he wants to take a boy by apprenticeship, so that in case he dies before his widowed mother or little sister his property will go to them. He says he will treat the boy like his own and give him "a good start in the world." He includes the names of families in the area with no children that he thinks would provide a good home, but asks Weller not to use his name. Letter marked Wicksiffe, Ballard Co., KY.
