R0379-2 Miscellaneous – The Jewish Relief Committee

::R0379 : page 2::

THE Jewish relief committee of this country announces that it can render no more aid to the Jewish refugees from Russia—their funds are exhausted. Any steamship company hereafter bringing paupered cripples will be liable for their return according to Law.

The poor creatures who arrive here are truly pitiable, and unable to make themselves understood, even to their Jewish friends. Sixty started back to Europe on July 22d. This is indeed “the time of Jacobs trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.”
