Excerpt from Report of the Treasurer of the Committee of Relief: For the Sufferers by the Fall of the Pemberton Mill, in Lawrence, Mass;, On the 10th of January, 1860

Having been specially intrusted by you with the care, and to a great extent with the disbursement, of the very large fund contributed for the relief of the sufferers by the late appalling calamity at the Pemberton Mill in this city, it is due to you, and it is due to the contributors, and it may also be interesting to others as a somewhat remarkable chapter in the annals of charity, that I should render to you, and through you to the public, some account of the extent of the relief afforded and of the principles which have guided its distribution. In so doing I may be permitted to recur to matters familiar to yourselves, but which it may not be inexpedient to bring in a few words to the knowledge or recollection of those whose sympathies have reached us from distant quarters, and who therefore know but little of what has been needed and what has been done.

With the physical causes of the disaster we have here nothing to do. It is simply as a record of a charity, extraordinary in its extent and character, and an account of the administration of their trust by a Committee, self-appointed as it were, and directly responsible to no particular tribunal, but who have felt their responsibility none the less for that reason, that the following statement is presented.
