[following is illegible on right margin]

Mr. Printer,
I am very sorry to learn that the very excellent
Address of our highly respectable and much esteem'd [illegible]
which was intended to induce the Representatives of [illegible]
numerous absent English Proprietors to assist in their [illegible]
in paying off the Debt still outstanding for the Erection [illegible]
St. George's Chapel, has not yet produced that [illegible]
I am too well aware in te situation many of [illegible]
Proprietors who looked for Ease and Opulence in [illegible]
native Land are placed by a succession of bad Crops, [illegible]
their Attornies must naturally feel it incumbent on them [illegible]
restrain those Feelings that would actuate them in a [illegible]
of greater Prosperity and that any additional [illegible]
however small, added to the increasing Pressure of the [illegible]
ual Taxes, must make itself felt by the Proprietor - but [illegible]
has at length pleased the Almighty to bestow upon us [illegible]
favorable Seasons and to emit a Ray of Light thru' the [illegible]
Gloom that has so long surrounded us, we ought to [illegible]
our Gratitude for his Favors, by forwarding the good [illegible]
of Religion and by the Promotion of its natural [illegible]
ees, Charity and Benevolence - It may be hoped this [illegible]
additional Contribution, to attain this desirable end, [illegible]
not prove burthensome or inconvenient to those Subscribers
in the Colony, by whose liberal Contributions and [illegible]
Assistance the Chapel has so nearly attained its Completion
and that those who have, from whatever cause, hitherto [illegible]
stained from Subscribing, will come forward according [illegible]
their Ability to promote a Work equally ornamental [illegible]
Town and honorable to the Country.
Already, as I am informed, their good Example [illegible]
induced the Members of the Dutch Church (which by [illegible]
Capitulation may be deem'd the established one of [illegible]
Colony) to remove the Opprobrium that so long hung [illegible]
it, by Subscribing to the Erection of a decent and respectable [ilegible]
Place of Worship for themselves, and for that Purpose [illegible]
have, in my opinion, with great Propriety applied [illegible]
Assistance from the Colony Chest, which I trust they [illegible]
receive, for it is many, many Years since not merely [illegible]
but common Propriety should have induced this to have [illegible]
done, and tho' the same Argument holds with respect to [illegible]
Taxes, surely many idle Expences ought to be curtailed [illegible]
The Promotion of Religious Worship.
May their Church tend, as I trust ours has and will [illegible]
to the Promotion of too much neglected Piety, too [illegible]
wanted Humanity among us - to Charity and to [illegible]
Christian Virtue, and both of us avoiding the thorny [illegible]
tortuous Paths of Religious Controversy, be induced [illegible]
emulate each other in good Works and in shewing by [illegible]
Actions that our Religion leads us equally to the great [illegible]
of all Religions - Fear and Love of God, Charity [illegible]
Good-Will toward Man.
Laicus Britannicus.
