Dear Mrs Roosevelt
am writing to you for some of your old soiled dresses if you
have any. As I am a poor girl who has to stay out of school.
On account of dresses & slips and a coat. I am in the seventh
grade in school but I have to stay out of school because I have
no books or clothes to ware. I am in need of dresses & slips
and a coat very bad. If you have any soiled clothes that you
don't want to ware I would be very glad to get them. But please
do not let the news paper reporters get hold of this in any
way and I will keep it from geting out here so there will be
no one else get hold of it. But do not let my name get out in
the paper. I am 13 year old.
