This letter was sent to my husband's grandfather, Reverend Christian Wismer Ruth.
December 21, 1937
Dear Dr. Ruth:
I have your letter of December 18th.
I am entirely aware of the situation you mention. For some years I have been the sole source of support for that family. The number of calls on my resources are such that I cannot do so in the great comfort that I should like to. However, I may inform you that every cent that they have comes from me. If there are other friends of theirs who can help, I know it would be well applied.
Rev. C. W. Ruth
