This is one of the rarer items I’ve managed to acquire, an issue of Mother’s Appeal. This one dates from January and February of 1932, and it offers a good insight into how somebody might be taken with Mrs. Baker’s sales pitch.
There isn’t much of anything a decent person could object to in the magazine. As I’ve said before, it’s hard to make a case against charity, especially one involving children.
If you didn’t know about Mrs. Baker’s past or her intentions, you might be won over easily. Many were.
