The Factory Girls - Heaven Bless Them!
"The Voice of Industry," Lowell, MA
April 30, 1847

will show how cordially and effectively the
factory girls of Lowell have responded to the
appeals made to their feelings of sympathy
and benevolence, by the distresses of the suf-

we were at liberty to make public the names
of those who have been the chief instruments
in this labor of love, but true charity seeks
not the applause of the world, and the injunc-
tion of silence is put upon our lips.
