In reply to yours of the 31st ult. I may inform you that I shall be pleased to receive the young lady referred to therein if suitable arrangements can be made between her friends and the Community, but not knowing what accommodations they wish to secure for her nor what care and treatment her case may require I am quite unable to give any definite terms for maintenance. If she takes a room among our private boarders at $10.00 per month she will be entitled to every comfort and privilege and we will clothe her for $1.00 per month. Of course, we have lower rates and the patients are very comfortable, but they are not “Private Boarders” and this poor child might not require first class accommodations.
However, if her friends wish to give her a trial here at our Institution for a month we would be better able to make a more satisfactory agreement at the end of that time.
