Society for Helping Destitute Mothers and Infants.  [drop-title] Destitute mothers and infants. The address of Miss Clarke, the Secretary of this charity, has been recently changed ... [Bosotn: Society for Helping Destitute Mothers and Infants, ca. 1890?]. 8vo ( 8.5"). [2] ff.
$115.00

The Society aimed at placing destitute and unwed mothers and their infants in service positions but made no promise of success or of the ability for the children to stay with the mothers. This brochure gives the names and addresses of the two women (Lillian F. Clarke, Mary R. Parkman) who did the interviewing and would supervise their lives, and lays down the strict rules regarding what is expected of the applicants.
        Clearly this was written for the women seeking help and probably was widely distributed in Boston and the surrounding area.
