Scope and Content

From D. Whitmore in Cotsbrook to Mary Tooth. She was very obliged for Tooth's kind attention to the Noakes case - the circumstances of which are very deplorable. Whitmore hopes that the class leaders can have an effect on 'so awful a character as Fanny's.' If the family is unable to support themselves, she is of the clear opinion that they must go on parish relief. Whitmore is sending five shillings with this letter, although Tooth should not give them all of it, if she thinks it unnecessary. If the Noakes family are not given the entire sum, Tooth should donate the remainder to other deserving cases that she is aware of.
