THE DISTRESS IN GREECE. ♦ APPEAL BY THE DUKE OF WEST- MINSTER. With reference to the distress in Greece, the Duke of Westminster has issued the following appeal to the British public:—" Although the gifts of the Hellenic Government and of the Greek merchants in Egypt, France, and England have hitherto materially alleviated the distress among the refugees in Athens and the Piraeus from Thessaly, Epirus, and Crete, I feel sure that my countrymen will regret the prolonged sufferings of these absolutely destitute peasants who are now the victims of the dilatoriness of European diplomacy. The resources of the Greek Government are exhausted by the heavy charges con- sequent upon the late campaign, and there are, I am assured on the best authority, no less than 50,000 women and children and old men entirely dependent upon private charity. It is on behalf of these innocent sufferers, driven from their homes and robbed of their harvest, that I appeal to those who are always willing to assist in succouring the poor and needy, no matter in what part of the world they may dwell. Donations will be thankfully received by the hon. treasurer, Grosvenor House, or at Lloyds Bank, 16, St. James's-street, for the Greek Refugees' Fund. All sums received will be remitted by telegraph to her Majesty's Minister at Athens for distribution through local agencies.— Yours, &c., WESTMINSTER, President, Greek Refugees' Fund, Grosvenor House, August 28th, 1897."
