The General Assembly has made the following appropriations for founding and maintaining the ‘Louisiana Soldiers' Home,’ established in 1883, on Bayou St. John, near the bridge at the end of Esplanade street, New Orleans:

Out of the revenues of 1883$2,500 00

For the year ending June 30, 188510,000 000
For the year ending June 30, 188610,000 00
For the year ending June 30, 18877,500 00

For the year ending June 30, 18897,500 00
For the year ending June 30, 18907,500 00
$55,000 00

To the above amount in State warrants may be added seven thousand dollars in cash, received from the two divisions of Louisiana. Confedederate Veterans of the Army of Northern Virginia and Army of Tennessee, being the amount realized from the two days sham battles and entertainments given at the Fair Grounds, New Orleans, in September, 1883.

The Soldiers' Home now affords comfortable quarters, clothing and subsistence to fifty-one Confederate veterans, all disabled from injuries, wounds or loss of limbs in line of duty. [157]

To fully develop and carry out the purposes intended, and to establish on a firm basis the ‘Louisiana Soldiers' Home,’ in which all classes are interested, it is hoped that the General Assembly will continue the appropriations on a more liberal scale, for the extention and maintenance of this humane and deserving institution.
