THE LYDEAMORE FUND. A DISTRESSING CASE. AN APPEAL TO THE KINDHEARTED. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder — 7 March 1918
THE LYDEAMORE FUND. A DISTRESSING CASE. APPEAL TO THE KIND- HEARTED. Our attention has been drawn to the pitiable condition in which the widow of the late Mr James Lydeamore has been left. She has a large family, five of whom are absolutely dependent up- on her for their support. She has been under medical treatment for a painful affliction (housemaid's knee), and is quite unable at present to work, and will be for some time. She is liv- ing in a rented house and has practi- cally nothing, and no relatives who are in a position to afford her necessary help. Mrs M. L. Warren, who is always &nbsp; to the fore in cases of distress, is in- teresting herself on behalf of the un- fortunate woman and children, but more substantial assistance is requir- ed than can be rendered by a few pri- &nbsp; vate individuals, hence this appeal to &nbsp; the charitable public. Will our readers please extend their charity to this un- fortunate woman, who is more or less permanent...
