Dear Madam,
re A

In reply to your letter of yesterday's date I am very sorry indeed to learn what you say in regard to the girl in question. I find that she was retained at the Society's St. Nicholas' Home at Byfleet until she attained the age of 16, when arrangements were kindly made by Miss Drummond for her to be placed in a Home for Training Young Servants, in Tunbridge Wells. Unfortunately the Society's work being only intended for children we cannot keep such cases indefinitely but no effort is spared to teach these coming under its care such work as they may be capable of doing with a view to enabling them to earn their own livelihood. I was hoping, that the girl's future had practically been arranged for, and although I cannot hold out much hope of being able to provide her with a suitable opening, in any of the Society's Homes, it is needless to say that should I hear of anything at all suitable for her, I will gladly let you know.
Believe me

Yours very truly
Mrs. Cameron
