Ambassador Morgenthau returned to the U.S. in February 1916. He provided the Committee with a detailed report on conditions in the Near East based on observation and communication. Morgenthau estimated that one million Armenians had survived. The survivors were mainly women and children, and they were all destitute. He estimated that $5,000,000 was needed to relieve the suffering of minorities in Anatolia, Syria, and Palestine. ACASR voted to make a public appeal for this amount.
