Fatherless Children of France Child No. 7768

This letter and picture were among the papers of Charles Harrell Moran but I'm not sure why.  Harrell did sponsor an orphan from the Fatherless Children of France but not the orphan in this letter and picture.  The letter is addressed to Mrs. L.K. Thompson in Memphis Tennessee.  The orphan has the unique number of 7768.  I wonder if he received a sponsor.

Dear Mrs. Thompson:--

I am enclosing a photograph of one of the children whose name appears on the French list we sent you May 27th:

No. 7768  NOUGUIER, Dieudonne-Joseph
                 Lezignan-la-Oebe, (Herault)
                 born Oct 2 1914

The adopter of this child will doubtless be delighted to have this photograph.

Yours very truly,
Philip Posener
Assistant Treasurer
