Thomas S. Martin, Chairman. United States Senate, Committee on Appropriations. March 2, 1915. Mrs. Alice O. Taylor, Equal Suffrage League of Virginia, Richmond, Virginia. My dear Mrs. Taylor: Your letter of the 1st instant has just been received, and when the child labor bill comes up in the Senate you may be assured it will have every consideration that I can possibly extend to it. I am, of course, deeply interested in the welfare of the children and anything looking to the betterment of conditions in that connection will have close attention. I have been so occupied from morning until night with the large appropriation bills pending here which must be passed before Thursday that I have not yet become familiar with this measure. I will examine carefully into it when the bill comes up in the Senate, bearing in mind the wishes expressed in your letter. Very truly yours, Thomas S. Martin
