~ Charles Hollander ~

Western Agency of the New York Juvenile Asylum - 1899

From Mr. Edward Barnes, Lived Rome, IA, to Mt. Pleasant, IA

Report of Charles Hollander, aged 10 who came to Iowa in 1898.

"Charles is a different boy from what he was when I wrote you last winter and spring, he was very dilatory about his studies, the discipline at school being lax compared with what he had been used to at the asylum.  He has improved wonderfully in the last few months."
