The Committee for carrying into
Execution the Establishment of an Hospital for Sick Seamen, regret exceedingly
that the Meeting for that Purpose was so thinly attended on Saturday: An
Establishment in which Humanity is so greatly interested, and which on all
sides is admitted to be so desirable, can only be carried into complete
Execution by the unanimous Endeavours of the majority of the Colony. The Funds
required are too extensive for the means of a few Individuals, however strongly
they may be actuated by the desire of Saving the Lives and administering to the
Comforts in the moments of severe Sickness of so many valuable Seamen. - It is
most earnestly hoped that the Gentlemen Proprietors or Attornies for the
different Estates will come forward for this very benevolent Purpose and
signify, either by Subscription at the Union Coffee House, or by a Line
addressed there, the Amount of their Support, that the Committee may be enabled
to judge of their Power of completing their Object: - They the more earnestly
intreat that this may be done, as speedily as possible, as they are informed a
Report has been circulated of their having abandoned the Establishment; an Idea
the Committee have never for a Moment entertained, nor will they do so, unless
they have the Mortification to experience the Want of a sufficient Support,
which from their knowledge of the Colony they flatter themselves they shall not
be reduced to entertain.
All those who have any Demands against,
or are indebted to the Estate of the late Mrs. Rosetta Tobie, Widow E. Dallee,
are requested to call for Payment upon, and Pay their Debts to the
Underwritten. - as Executors to the last Will.
