Giiiiirls, I'm Mrs. Wilson. I'm the lady who talks to the new girls. Now most of you
come from out of the country and you ain't never been in a big city like Lowell, so I want
to explain to you that you're supposed to always wear your shoes and to wash your face and
hands. Mr. Templeton likes to see all his girls looking clean?
And speaking of that, there was a very famous writer come here last year from England. His name was Mr. Charles Dickens. And he said he's never seen no place who had any prettier girls than the Lowell girls. And that's how Mr. Templeton likes to have it.
Now I know some of you may be scared because of all the things you heard against girls working. Even the preachers say it's wrong. But don't you listen even if they do. Because Mr. Templeton don't let no girls here get in trouble if he can help it. Don't you worry, Mr. Templeton wants you to know you'll be safe here with him.
