Good for Milwaukie

MILWAUKEE, April 9. – The Chamber of Commerce on the Governor’s recommendation held a meeting to-day for the relief of the wounded at Pittsburg Landing.  After subscribing liberally the doors were thrown open for the reception of hospital stores.  To-night the room is well filled and an agent of the Governor’s accompanied by surgeons will leave to-morrow to render all the aid possible for the comfort of [the wounded.]

– Published in the Burlington Weekly Hawk-Eye, Burlington, Iowa, Saturday, April 12, 1862, p. 3.  The last two words were cut off when the newspaper was microfilmed.  The exact article appeared in the Burlington Daily Hawk-Eye, Burlington, Iowa, Thursday, April 10, 1862 which I have used to reconstruct the missing text in this article.
