From Mrs. Hilda Moss, July 1937

 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 3

Scope and Contents

Red lined paper with machine-typed lettering reads:

Dear Miss Brown: Clarence swollowed [sic] a penny last Friday, so he is on a bread and mashed potatoe diet until he passes it off. In the meantime, of course, I have to keep him home to watch his stool. I hope he will be able to return tomorrow as the nursery has certainly done wonders for him. Sincerely yours, Mrs. Hilda Moss.
