Illinois Staats-Zeitung -- January 17, 1871[Relief for the German Soldiers Wounded in the War]
Everywhere complaints about the slowness of collections for the German wounded. In Detroit and Pittsburgh they have come to a complete standstill. Some reports on the evils prevailing- the Prussian system of caring for the army in the field have been taken by many people as excuse before their own conscience to do nothing further.
"Should the enthusiasm for the sake of the old fatherland have burn down like a straw fire?" "We will not hope so!" exclaime the Pittsburgh Volkstatt. We fear it did.
