Letter for Effemy McKay to Dr Black

Letter informing Dr Black, Inspector of Poor that Effemy McKay is in a "miserable condition." She is unable to do anything for herself either to support herself or to care for herself. She already receives two shillings per month but this does not supporter her for "one third of the time."

She cannot even purchase "night or day clothing" and so is in need of these necessities.
