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


This boy was stated by his foster mother to be very fond of school, and a good boy in every respect, notwithstanding the bad example set by his brother Thomas Newman, who was recently transferred to another home.  He has a bedroom of good size to himself, and has never required the services of a doctor, until about two months ago, when he suffered from a bad cold.
