Chicago, Ill.

Dear Miss Addams,

The Day Nursery Association is in need of a matron for its home. Have you any one connected with your work whom you could recommend to us for that position? Our home is for the children of women employed during the day; the children may be left with us from 6 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. of the same day. In case the parent is employed at work where it is impossible for them to care for the child, it is then cared for by the week. These cases are particularly investigated before such provision is made.

Our matron must be the superintendent, housekeeper and manager. She has no manual work to do, but must over see the work in all departments. We employ six assistants to the matron - day nurse, night nurse, two governesses, a man, and a cook. Our children are between the ages of ten months and twelve years. We have an average daily attendance of thirty five. We pay a salary of thirty dollars a month to our matron; this of course means she has a room to herself, her board and laundry. She must be at least thirty five years old and of pleasing personality. We shall appreciate very much an early reply.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. Fred S. Knodle Sec.
