17th, December 1904.

Dear Madam,
re "G"

I have to thank you for your letter and for so kindly making enquiries in respect of the above lad; unless you hear to the contrary, he will be sent under the c/o the guard on MONDAY next by the train leaving Euston @ 11 o'clock due to arrive at Birkenhead @ 3.40, where I shall be obliged if you will kindly arrange with the mother for him to be met. It is very kind of you to offer to defray the travelling expenses and I will write later on letting you know what they amount to.

I am very sorry the lad is returning, especially as I note you say he wants to begin work as an under-gardener and could have, therefore, been transferred to the Society's S. Benet's Home, Caversham, which is specially intended to teach lads gardening.

Yours very truly,

Miss W.
