Works at Ewen Breaker. Lives in Sebastopol. Couldn't spell his own name and didn't know name of street he lives on. Seems to be under 12 years old. All were suspicious of my sending them to school. Philip Kurato's step-mother told me (through an interpreter) that he has a birth certificate showing him to be 13 years old; that he has been working in the breaker for two years - and that Squire Barrett gave him his working papers. The step-mother owns a home near by, said to be worth $1,500. Location: Port Griffith, Pennsylvania. Date Created/Published: 1911 January. LOC original medium: 1 photographic print.
