If You will be Kind Enough

Thank you for your letter,
addressed to the secretary
who is away
from the office today.

Matron says
that Ellen has just a slight cold
but she hopes it will have disappeared
by Monday.

Would you be kind enough
however to telephone her
tomorrow morning,
when she will let you know
how the baby is.
Her number is Park 4601.

The baby should have
warm woollen things
including a vest, dress, little coat
and a shawl. 

But any clothes Mrs Buttress
has not got yet
Matron will be glad to lend
if you will be kind enough
to return them to her
when you get home.

National Children’s Adoption Association, 15th January, 1937
