Ky.: . ln this letter I send you a little money that I collected for the poor people that were In the storm. I made a list.' and all . who wanted to give rae something I put their name down, but the people he - re would iot give me u.cr than one cent, so it took me a long time to get this lttle sum I sent you. If I lived in New Orleans I could collect more, but I am a stranger in Louisville. Paia gave me 25 cents, and so did muni.; the rest I collected in pen hies. - I thing If all the children in the free schools of New Orleans would give Ave cents it would be a great help to all those poor people that have not got a home. What I send is not much, but.it might buy some poor little girl a pair of shoes. .Let eacn teacher ask their scholars to bring five cents. I asked my teacher, bat she said she could not do it.
