Detroit Free Press, December 25, 1911
Eloise not only benefited from the charity of the county till but also the generosity of the areas well-to-do citizens. As already noted in a previous post (no thanks to the Free Press search engine which omitted this picture from the story and posted it on Christmas Day instead) Mrs. William C. Hensler, wife of a noted Detroit engraver, was one such benefactor. Her visit during the Christmas holiday season not only supplied the ladies ward with a stocking full of goodies including a shawl, nuts, fruits, popcorn and sweets. They were also treated to a chicken dinner courtesy of their hostess.
