New Town, 27th
In consequence of
being appointed Treasurer to St. George's Church at a Meeting of the
Subscribers thereto, held by public advertisement the 20 inst. at Marshall's
Hotel, the undersigned, in order to ascertain what monies may be yet due by the
Committee under whose direction the Church has been erected, and to bring all
accounts against the same to a close by the 25th of March next, according to
order, requests all persons having accounts relating to the Church, to be
pleased to render to him an exact statement of them, properly authenticated by
any one of the Committee, crediting at the same time such payments as may have
been made on account thereof.
He will also be
obliged to those Persons, who have taken Pews, for the amount of the Rent fixed
at the above meeting to be paid immediately, for which Receipts guaranteeing
the entire and free possession of the same will be given by him.
And, as some
respectable names appear as Subscribers to this excellent purpose, who have
suffered the payment of their Donations to escape recollection, he was
particularly desired to call upon them to pay the same without delay; he
therefore hopes to be excused for thus publicly soliciting them to contribute
their assistance, that he may be the better prepared to meet every claim, and
save himself the unpleasantness of importunate and repeated applications.
