Miss Ashe's Return
The arrival of Miss Elizabeth Ashe on Monday was made considerable of an ovation, as the children from the Telegraph Hill settlement were all there to welcome her when she and Miss Alice Griffith arrived at the Ferry Building. Miss Ashe did notable work for the children of France during the war. She had experience on those lines during her long years of service at the settlement in the Latin Quarter here, which she founded, and high praise was given her by authorities in France for the work done for orphans overseas. Miss Ashe is one of a large family, and her family has lived here since early days -- Mrs Norman McLaren, Mrs Harold Sewell, the sisters; the late Will Ashe (who married Miss pet Peters of Stockton), Porter, Gaston, and Sidney Ashe, the brothers. Mary Ashe Miller, the former newspaper woman of San Francisco, and like Miss Betty Ashe a noted war worker, is a cousin. Admiral Farragut, hero of the civil war, was an uncle.
