Yester Boyajian of Marash
Detail: 'YESTER BOYAJIAN, whose name means Esther, daughter of the dyer, was a Marash orphan under Miss Salmond. When Miss Salmond broke her hip and was obliged to go to England, her orphans were heart broken, not because she was leaving them, but also because the French leaving Cilicia, exposed the Armenians. Recently Mustapha Kemal Pasha allowed the orphans to go to Beirut. As Yester is only 13 years old and has no one left in the world, Miss Freason, in whose care she now is sent us her picture and asks aid.' Written on folder: 'In correspondence between Emily C. Wheeler of the National Armenia & India Relief Association.'
