March 28, 1904

Mr. C.E. Scribner,
Walker, Minnesota

Dear Sir:

Yours of the 26th inst. is received. I note what you say concerning the return of Ellen Clark to her mother. Will you kindly write me fully about the mother's plans? We would like to know where her restaurant is to be started, whether in Walker or in some other place. Also state whether, in your judgement, such an arrangement would be for the best interests of the girl. We have just completed arrangements for Ellen to go to another home. The papers have been signed and the money for her transportation was received previous to the receipt of your letter. However, she has not gone and I will hold her until I hear from you again. Perhaps the people who were to take her would be willing to take some other girl if it seems best to return Ellen to her mother. We certainly do not want to do any injustice to the mother but want to give the child the best opportunities possible.

Yours very truly,
G.A. Merrill
