R. C. Tartar writes to the Home regarding the Bullock children, who he says were "sent by me to your good Institution sometime ago." He says that John will be 9 on August 28th and George will be 6 on October 18th. Their mother is "Mrs. Emiline Bullock" of Somerset, and their father "is a worthless character and his whereabouts is unknown to me now." He asks to hear how they are doing, adding "their mother is a good woman, and a hard working, but the task was too hard for her." Letter marked Somerset, KY.
