About This Item

Philadelphia: Merrihew & Thompson, printers, 1850. Paperback. Very Good. 32 p.; 23 cm. Green wrappers with black wrapper title. The Union Benevolent Association was established in 1831 to provide assistance to Philadelphia residents by lending stoves to help heat their homes during a harsh winter, along with wood and coal. The intention was to help the "worthy poor" without regard for religion or race. The activities of the organization have evolved since 1831; today it provides grants to projects to fight poverty. This report contains a list of people who contributed to the Union Benevolent Association for the previous year with the amount given, as well as detailed data about the people with whom the association had worked. The (male) officers of the Association are listed; none of the members of the Ladies' Board of Managers are named, although the majority of the report is theirs. Scarce. In Very Good Condition: wrapper is lightly soiled and creased; 3-cm. closed tear at upper corner of front wrapper; internally clean and tight.
