A. Estabrook response to E.R. Evans, about the &quote;possible inheritance of eroticism&quote; in adopted child VI 89 of the Nam lineage (2/17/1917)

Board of State Charities, Room 93 State House, Indianapolis, Ind., Feb. 17, 1917. Miss Ethel R. Evans, State Charities Aid Association, New York City. My dear Miss Evans:- [obscured] is VI. 89 and her father, [obscured], is V. 64 in the Nam family. Their description will be found mainly on pages 16 and 17. Please consider this information entirely confidential and not to be used outside of your office in any way. You will have to use your own judgment about giving the facts of [obscured]'s inheritance to the foster mother. I think the mother perhaps should know the possible inheritance of eroticism which may appear in [obscured] at the time of adolescence. Further than that the child should get along very well it seems to me in her new home although as you say the child will never be very intellectual. I shall be glad to hear of the school report of [obscured] when you secure it. Sincerely yours, [end]
