THE FOUR BABIES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889

THE FOUR BABIES. TO THB EDITOR. Sir — I am sure many of your readers will regret to hear that three of the quartet of children recently referred to in your columns are dead. Several ladies have been assisting Mrs. Norris, the mother, who is in a very low state of health. Mr. Norris has had to leave home in search of work, and consequently the wife is left without many necessary things which in her weak state she requires, I tell you this so that any friends who feel so disposed may perhaps be willing to join myself and others in raising a few pounds to assist this interesting lady and equally interesting surviving baby. I shall be glad to take charge of any money sent to me for the purpose, or, better still, perhaps you, sir, would kindly do so,— I ain, &c, EMMA M. EREARSON. Unley-road, Hyde Park.

The afternoon's tide rose with moderating weather, though the force of some squalls was very heavy. The tide waB not as high aB on the previous day.
