"Service and Criticism; An Offer Of Help; To the Editor of the Tribune"

Will the piety and intelligence of New-York, seeing Christ, as he told us to do, in these His suffering ones, do for them what they have neither time nor knowledge to do for themselves?

This annonymous letter to the editor of the Tribune, praises the paper for revealing the conditions of New York's poor, but questions whether or not New-Yorkers will act to help those "who cannot help themselves."
