View the Case Summary.

15th March, 1907.


Dear Miss Hull,

re case of J.

I am much obliged to you for you letter of yester-day's date, and for kindly writing to me so fully in regard to the about case. As much as I should like to be able to help to secure an easier and more agreeable situation, I fear that it is quite out of my power to do so. As a matter of fact, in many respects he is singularly fortunate in having succeeded in securing employment for which he is undoubtedly, having regard to his physical condition, most fitted. You will understand the great difficulty that we have in finding situations for the many crippled boys and girls under the Society's care, and the labour market is still very overcrowded, both in London and elsewhere. I should, therefore, be very reluctant to advise to leave his present place, although one can but feel sorry that his health is so unsatisfactory. I presume he has had medical advice, and perhaps there may be means whereby he can make his position more comfortable, by mentioning the matter to his employers?
