Deserted by Her Husband - She is in Destitute Circumstances.
A young woman about 25 years old, accompanied by her two children,
a boy aged 5 and a girl aged 7, applied for relief several days ago to the
officials of the Childrens home. She said her name was Mrs. Robert Trexter
and that her husband had deserted her, leaving her in a very destitute condition.
Her situation is very distressing. as she hasn't a penny and no means of
securing any money. She said she had a brother in the shoe factory business
in Portsmouth who was in good circumstances. She did not seem to want him
to know how her husband had treated her. Mrs. Trexter wanted her children
admitted to the home or enough money to take her to Portsmouth. Her husband
is said to have abused her shamefully and deserted her without cause.
