14-11-1891: Charitable donations by Ferguson & Urie.

The Argus, Melbourne, Saturday 14th November 1891, page 7

Charitable acknowledgements appeared in the Argus newspaper many times until the closure of the company in 1899. Donations were made in the name of Ferguson & Urie and in the name of Employees of the firm for donations to Hospitals and other charitable organisations. Although James Ferguson and James Urie were staunch Presbyterians, they appeared to make no particular distinction or favour when it came to charity or the church.
