Appeals For Support to be Given in Possible Campaign to Raise $30,000,000
Governor Emerson C. Harrington today issued the following appeal:
‘The campaign to raise $30,000,000.00 for relief in the near east of Armenians and Syrians in m opinion, deserves our warmest sympathy and support. Never have I read of such horrible crimes as have been perpetrated upon the Armenians and Syrians by the Turks. Never have I been more greatly moved than in reading of their terrible afflictions and sufferings. These people need every dollar asked to save them from total destruction. Their appeal cries to Heaven. We must help to save them.’ Signed E.C. Harrington. Dec. 10. 1918.
