Ithaca Donors during the Civil War

The article was undated in the scrap book but placed between two 1863 articles on NY quotas and drafts with one of them actually pasted slightly over this article. The article was actually a double column of names and where you see abbreviations it was so they could fit it into the column.

A Most Creditable Record

The citizens of Ithaca deserve much praise for the energy, liberality and determination manifested during the last few days in raising the money necessary to secure the quota of volunteers from this town and to pay them $100 each additional bounty. Nearly $15,000 have already been voluntarily subscribed for this purpose. Fifteen thousand dollars is a large amount to be raised for such a fund in a community like this - especially when it is considered that it has before raised an equal amount during the past year for a very similar purpose. It is a record that we may proudly stand by.

That the volunteers may see who it is that has furnished the money to pay them this munificent bounty, we publish below the names of the subscribers and the amounts of their subscription. The Committee are still soliciting additional subscriptions, and we shall be happy to add their names next week. Any mistakes we may have made in publishing the list we shall be pleased to correct next week.
