Dear Colonel Scrugham:

This will introduce to you Mrs Edna L Carpenter, whom I have known since she was in her teens, and who is a sister of my old friend Arthur C Parker, Director of the Rochester Municipal Museum, an Anthropologist of note and a 33d Degree Mason. 

Mrs. Carpenter's life has been a very unhappy one, and she has come to Nevada to seek the only remedy.

She is rather short on funds so Mr Schellbach has advised her to go Carson City rather than to Reno, to save expense.

If you can give her any information that will enable her to win her freedom at a minimum of cost it will be greatly appreciated.

Almost of equal value to her would be information on where she might find a position that would help out with her expenses.

Hoping that you will be able to help Mrs Carpenter, and with kind personal regards I remain

Sincerely and fraternally yours
