Louis Birch, 4th & Pine Sts. Newsboy, 12 years of age. Just started selling. Made 10 cents one day. Father dead. While not under any compulsion to sell papers, Louis, of his own accord, took it up in order to help support his widowed mother. Louis is a brother of Stanley Birch, whose full history is contained in the text of the general report. Louis stays out until 12:30 every night and goes with his brother, Stanley, who is a messenger, on all calls because Stanley is afraid to be out on the street alone at night. Louis is clean, bright and willing. Visits saloons. Don't smoke. Works 9 hours per day. Gives money to mother. May 1910. Investigator, Edward F. Brown.
