Whereas two vacancies have taken place in the College of Kiezers of this River, in consequence of the departure from the Colony of Fr: Martin Esq. and of the death of James Ogle Esq., and whereas it is also necessary that two new Finantial [sic] Representatives for Demerary should be elected, viz: in the room of the said James Ogle Esq. deced: and of John Wilson, Esq. who completed his two Years of Acting in that situation in December last;
I have thought fit to issue this my Proclamation, thereby calling on all Inhabitants who, being possessed of five and twenty Slaves or upwards, are entitled to vote for the Election of Kiezers and of Financial Representatives, now to give in their votes for two Kiezers, in the room of Fr: Martin Esq. and of the deceased Js. Ogle Esq. and for two Financial Representatives in the room of the said James Ogle Esq. deced: and of John Wilson Esq.
The Votes which ought to be signed and contained in a Sealed Note, must be deposited before the 5th July next, at the Government Secretary's Office in Stabroek, where a Sealed Box shall be placed to receive them; - and upon the expiration of that time, the said Votes will be examined with the usual formalities and the Persons elected to the vacant situations aforesaid, proclaimed accordingly.

At a meeting held at Marshall's Hotel this day, in consequence of the prior meeting in the House of the Revd: W. G. Straghan, to take into consideration, the best means of establishing a Chapel in the Town of Stabroek, for the Members of the Church of England.
Present His Excellency the Governor, [centered]
It was Resolved, - That to the inattention and negligence of Divine Worship, the anarchy and misery which have so long deluged the world, and caused the affliction of mankind is greatly to be attributed, that it behoves every one but is especially essential, to the dignity and respectability of English Colonists, to mark the outward respect (which they inwardly acknowledge) for their Church establishment, by a decorous attention to every public duty appertaining to Religious Worship.
That, the Building in which it has been usual to perform service in Stabroek, is not large enough, to admit one-third of the population, and has other objections, which are considerable impediments, to devotion and attendance.
That, it is particularly desirable and highly necessary, for the respectability, as well as the moral and religious benefit of the community, that a Chapel for Divine Worship, should be immediately contracted in this Town.
That, we whose names are subjoined, are most particularly anxious, and zealous, by our Subscriptions, and exertions, to promote its structure, and hasten its establishment.
That it is our particular wish and desire that his Excellency Governor Nicholson will be pleased to nominate and appoint a Committee, to receive Subscriptions, to collect the money already subscribed, and to conduct in the most expeditious manner the Building of the Chapel, which his Excellency has, always so anxiously, wished to see established in the Colony.
That R. B. Daly, Esq. prive and qq. the heirs J. Bourda having offered two Lotts of Land on Plantation Vlissingen, for the erection of the Chapel, of which we most gladly accept, that our thanks be publicly given to R. B. Daly, Esq. for his handsome and very liberal Donation.
His Excellency has been pleased, agreeably to our request, to appoint the following Gentlemen to form a Committee, for receiving Subscriptions and to carry into effect the above resolutions, any three members of which, will be sufficient to act, on all occasions.

And it is further resolved that the said Committee be allowed the privilege, of electing any additional members, whom they may deem necessary.
That a Book be prepared for the insertion of the names of the Subscribers, which is to be deposited in the Chapel, as a lasting monument of their munificence.
That, the thanks of the meeting be given to his Excellency Brigadier-General R. Nicholson, our Acting Lieutenant-Governor, for his zealous exertions in forwarding and promoting so laudable an institution.
And lastly, that the foregoing Resolutions be inserted in the Public Papers of this Colony for three weeks successively, and also in the Barbados Mercury.
