In this group are some of the youngest workers in Spinning Room of Cornell Mill. The smallest is Jo Benevidos, 5 Merion St. Other small ones are: John Sousa, 84 Boutwell St., Anthony Valentin, 203 Pitman St. Manuel Perry, 124 Everett St. John Travaresm [or Taveresm?], 90 Cash St. The difficulty they had in writing their names was pathetic. When I asked the second hand in charge of the room to let the boys go outside a moment and let me get a snap-shot he objected, saying they would stay out and not be in shape to work. When they carry dinners, they breathe the close air of the spinning room from 7 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. with no let-up. Cornell Mill. Location: Fall River, Massachusetts.
