Law Offices of Daniel DeLury, County Attorney, Cass County
United States Commissioner, Walker, Minnesota
April 8, 1904

Hon. Galen A. Merrill,
Superintendent, State Public School,

Dear Sir:

I have your letter of the 28th ult., in which you ask if I think it would be wise to return to Ellen Clark, of Backus, Minn., her oldest child, who was admitted to your school on Oct. 7, 1903.

I have made inquiries, and from all that I can learn it would be much better to keep the child where she is. The mother is not highly spoken of. She is at present cooking in a hotel, where the atmosphere is not healthful for a child. It is the dream of every woman cook to have a restaurant of her own some day, where she will rapidly grow rich. There is no prospect for Mrs. Clark ever accomplishing anything in the restaurant business in a place like Backus, and it would not be long before she and the child would again be a burden on the county.

From what I can hear this woman\'s character is not of the best, and it seems to me better that the child should remain where she is.

Yours respectfully,
Daniel DeLury
County Attorney
