Excerpt from The Second Annual Report of the Western Freedmen's Aid Commission: Cincinnati, Ohio

The Western Commission was organized with special reference to the wants, physical and moral, of the freed people in this great Central and Western Region. It has an area of two hundred and eighty thousand square miles, and, in 1860, had, including twenty-five thousand free blacks, a colored population of more than one million, two hundred and fifty thousand. This whole region is so easy Of access from the free States in the Mississippi Valley that it was a plain duty to institute some association through which the benevolence Of the people in these States might Operate in behalf Of the freedmen. It is well that the work was organized in Cincinnati, as the whole slave region in the Test, now reoccupied by the Government, is most readily reached from this city by the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, their navigable tributaries and important and connected lines Of railway. Louisiana and Texas, with a slave pop ulation in 1860 of more than five hundred thousand, are not mentioned above, they being about equally accessible from the east by ocean and the west by river navigation; and the successes of the National arms in the central and western region have been SO rapid that, except to meet very urgent appeals, we have not extended our work beyond it. W e operate at three points in Louisiana.
