December 28, 1903

Mrs. E. L. Clark,
Backus, Minnesota

Dear Madam:

Replying to your letter of recent date which was duly received, I will say that the package which you sent for the children came alright and the presents were given to them Christmas Eve at the time the presents were distributed to all the children. We had a very pleasant time in our Hall where the children were all assembled and every one of them received remembrances as well as candies, nuts, oranges, etc.

We have been waiting until the baby had so far recovered so he could be taken down to the gallery with the other children to have their pictures taken. This was done a short time ago. The pictures have been received and we will send them to you immediately. I think they are very fine. They certainly indicate that the children are well and growing.

I have recently visited your people at Spirit Lake and am sorry to say I was disappointed in securing from them a promise to take the children. They are not in a position to assume the responsibility and burden of caring for them. I expect to see your sister, however, and after talking the matter over with her, will be able to decide what is best to be done and let you know then.

Yours truly,
Frank Lewis
State Agent
