Brother Edward said to be thirteen years, but doubtful. Mother said they had no Family Record here and gave me ages from memory. See Hine report. Location: Huntsville, Alabama.

"Pinkie" Durham one of the smallest sweepers in the Merrimack Mill. Been sweeping for several months. The School Record shows he is eight years old now, but because his mother insists he is twelve, he is permitted to work. Very small and very immature. See Hine report.

Outside view of the Mill School at the Merrimack Mills, tucked away upstairs over the store. Equipped with antique, dilapidated benches and chairs. The lessons begin at 6 [?] A.M. and last for six hours, and these children who attend in the morning go into the mill in the afternoon and vice versa for the required eight weeks, which the law specifies. Taking everything into consideration it shows what a travesty vocational guidance may become, and is in itself the best example of Dotheboys Hall I have ever seen, except that it is not half so practical as was Squeer's school. See Hine report. Location: Huntsville, Alabama.

Millie May Crews [?] (in front of her father) 369 B Street. She has been working in the weave room for one year. Began at eleven years. Just reached twelve according to Family Record which says she was born November 12, 1901. These two girls and one who is sick work in the Merrimack Mill. Father is a carpenter. See Hine report. Location: Huntsville, Alabama.

Frank Baldwin. Been spinning and doffing in Merrimack Mills for a year and a half, so he went to work at least at eleven years old, if we can believe the Family Record which says he is thirteen this month, but indications are that the record had been changed. See Hine report. Location: Huntsville, Alabama.

Georgie Baldwin. According to the Family Record (which says born August 15, 1903) he has just been working nearly a year in the Merrimack Mfg. Mills. When his father read me the dates from their Family Record he raised the ages (making the boy twelve now), but I saw the dates myself and got it straight. The father is rather old and seems to be ailing. See Hine report. Location: Huntsville, Alabama.

Two of the workers in Merrimack Mills. See Hine report. Location: Huntsville, Alabama.
