Excerpt from Report of the Committee of Merchants for the Relief of Colored People: Suffering From the Late Riots in the City of New York

Resolved, That to said Committee, are hereby granted full powers to assist all colored people whose property has been destroyed by the mob, in making the needful proof of the facts to obtain redress from the County, under the Statute Laws of the State of New York, and that they have authority to collect funds and employ Counsel for that purpose.

Resolved, That we will exert all the influence we possess to protect the colored people of this city, in their rights to pursue, unmolested, their lawful occupations, and we do hereby call upon the proper authorities to take immediate steps to afford them such protection.

Resolved, That we will not recognize or sanction any distinction of persons, of whatever nation, religion or color, in their natural rights, to labor peaceably in their vocations, for the support of themselves and those dependent upon them; and that, so far as we are able, to contribute to the wants and necessities of our fellow men it shall be done without reference to these distinctions. And further, that what we now propose doing for the colored man, we shall ever be ready to do for any class of our fellow men, under like circumstances.
