MARY GARRETT HAY
2 WEST 86TH STREET
NEW YORK CITY

Dec. 22, 1913.

Mrs. Anna Jackson,

Dear Mrs. Jackson:
As you perhaps know I am on the New
York Prison Commission, and it seems that the
Superintendent of the Women’s Prison at Auburn
is going to leave, and some of the members of
this Commission asked me if I could make any
suggestion to superintendent Riley of someone
suitable to the place.
As you have been connected with this
work so long, could you suggest anyone?
Yours hastily,
Mary G. Hay

Mary Garret Hay was a prominent suffragist. Asks Jackson about individuals who the New York Prison Commission could nominate for the superintendent position of the Auburn Women's Prison.
