Dr Hurd


Dear Sir


Will you be kind enough to send my Daughter -Lillie Allyn- home this week. I feel very much alarmed as to her health. She has been with you now two years, and I feel that it is too confining to remain longer. During her absence death has visited our household and it seems as though I cannot bear the thought of another leaving me so soon. I am fearful disease will follow. if she is not removed immediately. by sending her home this week you will grant a favor to an afflicted mother.


Respectfully. Mrs. D.V. Allyn
