Up to date I have received in cash trom the citizens of Ann Arbor and vicinity in aid of the starving people of Cuba the sum of $142,09; I have also received a quanity of clothing. Of this amount I have remitted to the Hon. Allen Sheldon, of Detroit, the coinmissioner for this state, as follows: February 5, $50; March 5, $60; yet on hand in cash $32.09, and a quantity of clothins:Of this amount there was contributed by the Bethlehem church, $32.39; Germán M. E. church, $6; Junior Endeavor society of Christ Church, $20; balance by private contributions. More than three-fourths of these sums have been contributed by Germans. We are, therefore. naturally led to the thought: Are the Germán people more charitably disposed than Americans ? This is a cause worthy of the earnest support of a'.l our respected fellow citizens, Americans as well as Germana, but most especially should this appeal enlist the full support of all the Christian pastors and Christian people of this favored city. Commissionei'. Ann Albor, Mieh., April 6, 1898.
