Description

Tartar writes to the Home regarding two young children he is caring for in the Poor House of Pulaski Co.; one is 4 years old and the other 8 (very likely refers to Jerry Cook and Effie Burdine; see below). Tartar says that one child's mother is "an epeleptic," but "the disease has only recently demonstrated itself;" and the other child's mother "has tubuculosis." He asks for the children to be placed in the Home. Handwritten, "No further notice received." Letter marked Somerset, KY.
