|The Mill: One of the spinners in Whitnel Cotton Mill. She was 51 inches high. Has
been in the mill one year. Sometimes works at night. Runs 4 sides - 48 cents
a day. When asked how old she was, she hesitated, then said, "I don't
remember," then added confidentially, "I'm not old enough to work,
but do just the same." Out of 50 employees, there were ten children about
her size. Whitnel, North Carolina.
