George's Church. [heading]
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.
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
at the request of the Committee, in conformity to a resolution entered into on
Monday, 26th March 1810. W. G. Straghan.
