A large proportion of them are wounded or sick, and all are in a state of destitution.the Southern Prisoners' Relief Fund is intended to mitigate some of these sufferings.it is earnestly hoped that all Southerners residing in Europe will support the fund." Additionally, the Committee members are listed at the top of the broadside, beginning with Christopher Atkinson, (Charleston, S.C.,) Chairman.
