Clothes, Food, and Money Needed after Augusta Fire

In Augusta, the Committee of Fifteen, charged with organizing the city’s relief effort after the disastrous fire of March 22, reported that almost $40,000 had been collected. However, the committee noted that more than $50,000 was still needed and also issued a special plea for children’s clothes and food.
