Full Text

As a sequel to the story published in the Chicago papers concerning the baby which was left on the doorstep of the home of Adolph J. Lichtstern in Sheridan road, the infant has been adopted by Mrs. Mary Varley, hair dresser for Mrs. Lichtstern, who resides in 6118 Monroe avenue, Chicago.
Considerable interest was taken in the affair by Glencoe residents following the story that Mr. Lichtstern had been a near foster parent to the cherub left on his doorstep two months ago and didn't know it. According to the story Mrs. Lichtstern had the baby kept by her hairdresser, who visited the Lichtstern home once a week with the child. She was extremely fond of the waif, but was not allowed to give it a home because of the refusal of Mr. Lichtstern to submit to the adoption of the orphan. The baby is now eight months old.
