Excerpt from The All-American Cook Book: Being a Collection Chiefly of Recipes of the Favorite Dishes of Famous Americans
The object of the all-american Cook Book is to assist, through its sale, the wounded, the unemployed and needy ex-service men, especially those with dependent families.
All profits accruing to the publishers from the sale of this book will be under the careful supervision' of a committee of prominent citizens of Chicago, and receipts and expenditures subject to audit. This money will be given from time to time to the needy and dependent families of ex-service men, which are brought to the attention of the committee by the American Legion Association of Cook County, Illinois.
It is intended particularly to relieve suffering and distress in a class of cases somewhat overlooked, namely, the destitute families of ex-service men who are in hospitals, but who have not yet received compensation from the Government.
