Lydia Maria Child
North versus South
printer friendly version
We pay our domestic generous wages, with which they can
purchase as many Christmas gowns as they please; a process
far better for their characters, as well as our own, than to
receive their clothing as a charity, after being deprived of
just payment for their labor. I have never known an instance
where the "pangs of maternity " did not meet with requisite
assistance; and here at the North, after we have helped the
mothers, we do not sell the babies.

(from correspondence with Mrs. Mason)
