[No. 253.

Tuesday, March 27th, 1810.

St. George's Church. [heading]
March 26th, 1810.
At a meeting of the Committee in the Vestry Room of this Church, the Treasurer laid before the Members an accurate statement of the Money received and expended, together with the outstanding Accounts rendered in to him by the 25th inst. - according to advertisement, agreeably to a resolution of the last meeting. - By this statement it appears, that the Building is still considerably in arrears to many of its Creditors, and that there is unfortunately no fund to satisfy their Claims. The Committee, therefore, anxious to bring all Demands to a speedy settlement, that the establishment may be placed on some proper foundation in regard to its permanent regulation in future, are under the painful necessity of soliciting additional assistance from its pious Benefactors. To this measure they have recourse with no small degree of concern and embarrassment, in consequence of the generous support already afforded which was once deemed sufficient for the purpose; and they can only regret that circumstances are such as to oblige them to adopt it.
They have the happiness however of appealing to those (and to such only they wish to appeal) who have a sufficient sense of feeling and propriety to enable them to estimate justly the value of an institution fraught with such inestimable advantages to the temporal and eternal interests of a Christian Community. Under the favouring auspices of such Characters the sacred Edifice has risen to an almost perfect state of completion, and stands at once the ornament of the Town and a lasting monument of their munificence. To them the Committee venture once more to apply for a small contribution from each to supply the means of defraying the whole expence, the amount of which, though much beyond their calculation, they have at length been able to ascertain. They beg leave also to address themselves particularly to the Attorneys of English Estates in general, from this respectable class of the Inhabitants they have had the pleasure to receive a liberal donation in their private capacity; but as Representatives of Proprietors of Landed Property in the Colonies (with one exception only) they have hitherto met wit no support to the establishment in question. The Committee, confident that no Gentleman would have the smallest objection to assist in promoting a cause of such importance to Society in every point of view, take the liberty of calling on their Representatives to fulfil [sic] a duty for them which cannot fail to meet with their unqualified approbation.
Done at the request of the Committee, in conformity to a resolution entered into on Monday, 26th March 1810. W. G. Straghan.

The Committee for the Circulation of the Silver Coin lately imported, finding it necessary to call in the Stamped Paper, in order to make up the Accounts, hereby give Notice that the said Paper is by Authority withdrawn from Circulation and will be a Tender to the 1st day of May next and no longer, but will still always be received for Taxes &c. at the Office of the respective Receivers; - and they will be much obliged to the Gentlemen on the Estates in the Colony to communicate this Information to their Negroes to prevent Disappointment and Inconvenience.
Demerary, 27th March 1810.
