Excerpt from Report of Transactions of the Illinois State Sanitary Bureau From Its Organization December 18th, 1862, to September 12th, 1863: And Also of the Illinois State Sanitary Commission, From September 12th, 1863, to January 1st, 1864 At that time the Chicago branch of the United States Sanitary Commission, and the Western Sanitary Commission, were in successful course of Operation, and receiving liberal support, in contributions of money and stores from our citizens. It has been my constant endeavor to increase the amount of sanitary contributions by every means in my power, leaving to the donors the selection of the agency which should be the almoner of their bounties. During this period the donations to these Commissions have largely increased, while at the same time the people have generally seconded every effort put forth by this Department, and seem to have given it their fullest confidence. Commencing its Operations without friends, and relying entirely upon the free gifts of a loyal people for the material of its work, it could not have attained its present position for extended usefulness, had there not existed in the circumstances of the times through which we were passing a real necessity for the creation of those offices which this agency has volunteered to perform.
