Letter to Parochial Board concerning Any Mackay

Any Mackay is a sickly child with very little chance of recovery and no means of support. Her mother is getting weak and old and in danger of falling into the fire.

The situation is obvious to the neighbours and so request is made for poor relief from the parochial board.
