I have stated this repeatedly, and I have now to add that I shall no longer acknowledge any letters that are sent to me by persons who desire to use the Baby Exchange as a means of putting money into their pockets. The Exchange was started, and is maintained free of all expenses to either party, in order to ascertain whether it is possible to meet a want which undoubtedly exists, by enabling childless couples to furnish their households with children who, if not adopted, would be left without parents and without friends in the world.

sequently the babies have to wait their turn, and must be on our list longer than at first, when the balance was on the other side. As the object of my work in attempting this department is to be the inedium of finding children for foster-parents who are without children, yet feel the desire to fill up the blank in their hearts and homes by adopting as their own some of the homeless among the little ones, the work, from the foster-parents' point of view (which is the point of view of the Baby Exchange), does not suffer from the preponderance of the children.

I wish now to state explicitly that no help can be given from the Baby Exchange to those foster-parents who wish for a premium or other payments with the children. A number of letters come with such requests. From this date, no such letters will be noticed, but at once consigned to the wa-te-paper basket.
