June 17 -- 1914
Referring to the enclosed clipping and assuring that it is not newspaper fiction it may interest you to know that the story of the "Devil child" was related to me in [Pittsburgh] Pennsylvania more than 27 years ago. It was supposed to be confined in an institution of [blind] north of Allegheny city. It came into the world as a punishment for the remark "I would as soon have a Devil on the wall as those pictures" meaning religious pictures. It was believed mostly by Catholic young people.
