Excerpts from Welfare Applications

The following are excerpts collected from letters from people applying for payments from a state welfare agency.

I am glad to report that my husband who is missing is dead.

In accordance with your instructions, I have given birth to twins in the enclosed envelope.

I am very much annoyed to find you have branded my son illiterate. This is a dirty lie as I was married a week before he was born.

Unless I get my money soon, I will be forced to live an immortal life.

You have changed my little boy to a girl. Will this make a difference?

My husband got his project cut off two weeks ago and I haven't had any relief since.

I am forwarding my marriage certificate and three children, one of which is a mistake as you can see.

I cannot get sick pay. I have six children. Can you tell me why?

I am writing the Welfare Department to say that my baby was born.

Mrs. Jones has not had any clothes for a year and has been visited regularly by the clergy.

Please find for certain if my husband is dead. The man I am now living with can't eat or do anything until he knows.

In answer to your letter, I have given birth to a boy weighing 10 pounds. I hope this is satisfactory.

I am forwarding my marriage certificate and six children I have on half a sheet of paper.

My husband got his project cut off two weeks ago and I haven't had any relief since.

This is my eighth child, what are you going to do about it?

I want my money as quick as I can get it. I've been in bed with the doctor for two weeks now and he doesn't do me any good. If things don't improve, I will have to send for another doctor.

I am writing to say that my baby was born two years old, when do I get my money.

This is my eighth child, what are you going to do about it?

Please send me money at once since I have fallen into error with my landlord.

I have no children as yet as my husband is a bus driver and works day and night.
