Summary of Mr. Lockwood's reports upon Children Boarded-out under the care of the Millbrook Boarding-out Committee.


This boy was absent at the time of the inspector's visit.  Mrs Pedder, the foster mother, stated that, saving for a cold, from which he had suffered six weeks previously, and had been attended by a doctor, he had not ailed since his coming to Millbrook.  She described him as occasionally inclined to be "masterful", but had always found him truthful.  He slept in the same room (not apparently well ventilated) with foster mother, who expressed her regret at the prospect of losing him, consequent upon the recent death of her husband, and the probability of having to take in lodgers.
