Though the "circle of seasons" has been seven times completed since we began the work of the Temporary Home for Women and Children we have nothing new to offer to its untiring and ever-hopeful workers, but make our most earnest appeal to those who know little of us except through these yearly statements of facts.
The young girl sent to us by her mother for safety from the evil surroundings of her home, the baby needing the care which its sick mother cannot give, gladly left with us for a small sum by its father, and the poor young girls who are brought to our refuge where they are helped to resist their many temptations are all strong witnesses of the need of our labors.
