the Subscribers of the English Church, and others interested in promoting
a just statement of facts may in some measure do away with the bickerings of
the envious and dissatisfied, that have [illegible]ly crept into the Papers,
and as the Writer in the Paper of the 7th inst. Royal Gazette, has particularly
pointed his [illegible] against me, for what cause is best known to the
anonymous Writer. He calls me the busy, persevering Agent, &c. thereby
insinuating that I had without any authority put myself conspicuously forward
and officious. When I had the honour to be nominated by Governor Nicholson, as
one of the Committee for carrying into effect the wishes of the Subscribers, I
accepted the appointment with a Christian determination to fulfil my part of the
duty - if I have done [illegible], from the backwardness in the other Members
to assist, [illegible] I was bound to do, let not Envy throw dirt - the
Committee cannot attribute to themselves much aid or assistance, [illegible]
advert to facts - at the Meeting in December 1809, I exhibited a Statement of
Expenditures and Receipts, at the [illegible] time pointed out to whom the
Church was Indebted [illegible] the sums due, viz: - Messrs. Forresters f 376
- J. Robertson f 154 - Cook & Chorley f 8 12 - A. Iver f 986 10 - G.
Angle f 66 - Reith and Guthrie f 134 - Wm. Roach f 80 19 9 - Henry Austin
f 48 - T. T. Thomson f 103 17 - Cornfoot & Bell f 143 - B. Huntingford
f 202 15 - Elliot (plumber) f 756 - Malstab, per agreement for glazing
when finished f 352 - Van Ness f 31 8 - Mason, for pillars, f 233 - Fraser f
64 - J. Hicks, money advanced, near f 4000 - J. J. Gilgeous ----- John Mitchel
f 66 - Alves f 132 - Vendue Acct. f 179 10 Negro painters f 78 - Reid &
Douglas f 132 - Massiah f 31 - Halliday & Co. f 25 - Ballard f 31 10 -
C. P. Brotherson f 206 5 - This is the Statement. As the whole Business
devolved upon myself I surely ought to know what was due; and can any candid
person say I had any motive to secrete any thing thing [sic] that was owing.
And if, as the above anonymous Writer has stated, that there appears double the
amount paid that was given in, it does not arise from their then busy
persevering Agent, withholding any sums due, but from some other cause. Why
Mr. Gilgeous's account was left blank, was canvassed at the meeting, and
explained by me that he had departed from the Verbal Agreement to which there
was an Oral Evidence, and had charged in account rendered what was not just.
The business of Mr. Gilgious was referred to Mr. Thos. Cuming, who instead of
fixing the Account himself thought proper (which could have been done by the
Committee) to appoint two Appraisers, without giving me notice of the Meeting,
who could have explained away at least one of the charges, if not many others I
understand the Appraisers gave Mr. Gilgious more than he charged - I surely am
not to blame for this? - But I certainly take blame to myself for not entering
into a Written Agreement, but it is discordant to my feelings to adopt that Worldy maxim "To
deal with every Man as a Rogue," but it surely ought to have been done as
I was not acting for myself alone but for the Committee and Subscribers of the
English Church; notwithstanding this error for which I censure myself, I was
not singular, as two of the Committee committed themselves in respect to the
Pulpit; one of them so much a Man of Business as he ought to have been aware of
the consequences that ensued. If Mr. Gilgious has been paid more than agreed
for! - if Mr. Hadfield has received more than agreed for" let me not be
censured; as I never subscribed to their accounts except the contract for the
Pews - had the Members of the Committee thought proper to assist in the
laborious task, there would not perhaps have been that amazing waste of
American Lumber, which was from time to time delivered Mr. Gilgious, viz: - the
above 20,000 to finish not 70 squares of outside work and floor, which ought to
have been considered by Mr. Cuming's Appraisers; in this article and Nails I
only can charge want of oeconomy. I am conscious no personal labour or
attention was spared by me. The Quit-Rents from the beginning were intended to
meet expences of building the Gallery and finishing the Pews. As I had no
funds of the Church I advanced between 3 and f 4000 to Messrs. Huntingford and
Hadfield in full expectation, when the Pews were sold and paid for, I should
have been reimbursed; but there yet remain a deficiency due me.
Notwithstanding what any man may now say, I never heard it suggested, nor did I
ever conceive that the Quit-Rents for the Pews were sufficient to pay all the
outstanding Debts, when it was well known that the whole sum the Pews sold for
would hardly pay for what was due for the Pews and Gallery. The accounts given
in to Mr. Robertson were mostly certified by me, and they ought all of them to
have been so, as I was the only person to know if they were correct. With the
above Statement I leave the Community to judge of the Business.
12th July 1810. J. Hicks.
Friends and fellow Christians,
a period like the present, when an enlightened Public, are making laudable
exertions for the establishment of Religion in this Country, permit me to
address myself to you in general, but more particularly, to those who have been
educated as DISSENTERS, who I am credibly informed make a very large proportion
of the British Inhabitants of these Colonies - let us not be behind hand with
those whose modes and forms indeed differ from ours, not that we wish our exertions
in the least to interfere with them, but let us step forward and seize the
favorable moment when Religious liberty is by the Auspices of our Governor and
Magistrates placed on the broadest basis - Let us endeavour to erect a place of
Worship, and by our exertions in the Saviour's cause manifest our zeal for his
it be said by the friends of Piety, where is the Religion? - Where is the zeal
of Protestant Dissenters? - When all other Christians are striving to
perpetuate the the [sic] establishment of Religion in this Country, they alone
the Celebrated Zeal of our pious forefathers and Brethren be thus thro' us
Calumniated? - NO my friends.
of the Inhabitants have already most generously offered their aid in the erection
of a Place of Worship. - Multitudes more would, were they but informed
respecting our Religious Sentiments.
following brief sketch of the History of Dissenters, while it illustrates our
principles, may not be uninteresting:
the Reign of Mary, Queen of England, many Pious Persons fled from persecution
to the Protestant Countries on the Continent. They founded a Church at
Frankford, and availed themselves of the opportunity of proceeding with the
Reformation further than it was at that time in England. Their Minister was
the celebrated John Knox.
Mary was called to give an account of her administration at the tribunal of the
Judge and Sovereign of the universe, the Exiles returned to their native land.
With them they brought their Religion, which being dissimilar to that
established by Queen Elizabeth, they formed congregations of their own and
obtained the appellation of Puritans.* To these were added a fourth part of
the Ministers of the establishments, who were excluded as Puritans. Among the
suspended were the most learned and able Preachers.
but an unvaried scene of persecution - if we except the interregnum, marked
their History till the Reign of Charles the Second, when, by the Act of
uniformity, an Accession was made to their numbers, of two thousand
Consciencious Ministers, who were ejected from the established Church and the
name, Puritans gave place to that of Nonconformists.
they bore till the Golden-Reign of William the third, at which period, by the
Toleration Act - that Magna Charta of Religious liberty, they lost their name
and oppressions together. From that AEra in their History, they have been
denominated Dissenters. Their principles are now, what they were at their
rise, like those of the Reformed Churches, - Calvinistic, which will appear by
the Confession of Faith in use among them, and the Assembly's Catachism, which
hundred of us were taught while in our Infancy.
have thus particularly stated our principles to do away the erroneous ideas
respecting them which some have entertained.
