Joe Mello, 62 Grinnel [i.e., Grinell?] St., New Bedford. Appeared about eight or nine: could not speak English except to tell us that he was a sweeper in the spinning room (two other boys confirmed this); watched him go in at noon and come out at 6 P.M. on Aug. 21, 1911. At the houses his mother gave his name as Jose Mello, ten years old. There was no certificate for this boy at the superintendent's office. Birth records ambiguous.  Location: New Bedford, Massachusetts.
