HERE IS A GREAT BIG HUMAN!
REQUEST BY A MERE GIRL
The Day Book doesn't take adver
tisements, and if this sounds like one
it ain't no such thing. But a girl of
about 19, with great big blue eyes
that had a mist in them -and a face
so soft and tender that it would melt
the heart of a cynic, and a soft voice
that sounded as though it were a sen
tinel trying to keep back something
the owner of it didn't want to talk
about, walked into our office and
asked us this:
"Do you think you can find for me
a woman who is fond of children who
will take and board my two-months'-old
baby girl?" A pause. "I couldn't
pay so much and I don't want to
give the baby away just board her
out until she is a year old, so that
my sister can take care of her."
Another pause and the blue eyes
misted again. "I have to go to work,
so I cannot take care of her. But I
thought maybe you could find some
woman who likes babies who would
board my baby" it would thrill an
angel to hear her say "my baby"
"and I'll pay for her."
So this isn't an advertisement not
a bit of it but if there is some
"woman who is fond of children who
will board a two-months'-old baby
until the mother of it is able to take
care of it again any letters addressed
to The Day Book will be turned over
to the girl with the great big blue
eyes and a face that would melt the
heart of a cyme.
