The Fredonia Weekly Herald, Fredonia, Kansas, Friday May 26, 1916

This newspaper article gives us a glimpse into how an agent would arrange a train arrival with local communities. In this example, Agent Anna Laura Hill, who worked for the Children’s Aid Society, wrote to a doctor in Fredonia, Kansas, telling him how many children she would be bringing, when they would arrive, and where they will stay. She also told him the names and ages of all of the children who would be in the group.
