[Apostle Wilford Woodruff]

Meetings are held in the old Tabernacle & other places to Collect subscriptions for the suffers of the great fire in Chicago. President Brigham Young gave $1,000. D H Wells & Capt Hooper gave $500 each. D. H. Wells sent a Draft of $12,000 Dollars to the Mayor of Chicago. The outsiders also sent donations. All the United States are sending in their subscription for their relief.
