Washington City Orphan Asylum
If your institution dismisses girls at a certain age, and finds
for them homes where they can earn a living under favorable conditions,
I wish I might give such a one employment at my home in Chevy Chase.
I have a wife and one child—no servants—a small house,
an acre of ground, and many conveniences for the facilitating of
the work, such as electric lights, pumping engine, water-heater,
gas range, etc.
Mrs. Richardson is well fitted to instruct a girl in the valuable
points of cooking, sewing and other housework, and the experience
would be worth as much as the money.
In writing this I have tried to anticipate some of the questions
that will arise, but I will cheerfully answer more. Or, I can call
at the Asylum if so desired.
