'The story of fire relief at Salem, Massachusetts, was published as a newspaper serial when temporary rehabilitation of the families made destitute by the conflagration, had been completed. Its purpose was to furnish the inquiring public an unofficial account of the problems connected with giving relief to fire sufferers and the methods employed in the effort to give justice and satisfaction to both recipients of relief and donors of the fund. It is reprinted in its present form, at the request of persons engaged in social service, because it is deemed valuable as embodying information applicable to the giving of any emergency relief."

Reprint of a serial published in the Salem Evening News.
