Leslie writes to Hale asking him to no longer hire his wife, Ida Marrah, as a model to "stop the down-ward path of an erring wife." Hale's handwritten notation at the top of the letter reads "Erring Wife." Letter is dated April 20. Year based on 1910 census which lists Leslie as living at 35 Monument Ave., and Massachusetts marriage records which give the date of Leslie's marriage to Marrah as 1905.
