To the Subscribers of the English Church, and others interested in promoting Religious Worship.
As a just statement of facts may in some measure do away with the bickerings of the envious and dissatisfied, that have [illegible]ly crept into the Papers, and as the Writer in the Paper of the 7th inst. Royal Gazette, has particularly pointed his [illegible] against me, for what cause is best known to the anonymous Writer. He calls me the busy, persevering Agent, &c. thereby insinuating that I had without any authority put myself conspicuously forward and officious. When I had the honour to be nominated by Governor Nicholson, as one of the Committee for carrying into effect the wishes of the Subscribers, I accepted the appointment with a Christian determination to fulfil my part of the duty - if I have done [illegible], from the backwardness in the other Members to assist, [illegible] I was bound to do, let not Envy throw dirt - the Committee cannot attribute to themselves much aid or assistance, [illegible] advert to facts - at the Meeting in December 1809, I exhibited a Statement of Expenditures and Receipts, at the [illegible] time pointed out to whom the Church was Indebted [illegible] the sums due, viz: - Messrs. Forresters f 376 - J. Robertson f 154 - Cook & Chorley f 8 12 - A. Iver f 986 10 - G. Angle f 66 - Reith and Guthrie f 134 - Wm. Roach f 80 19 9 - Henry Austin f 48 - T. T. Thomson f 103 17 - Cornfoot & Bell f 143 - B. Huntingford f 202 15 - Elliot (plumber) f 756 - Malstab, per agreement for glazing when finished f 352 - Van Ness f 31 8 - Mason, for pillars, f 233 - Fraser f 64 - J. Hicks, money advanced, near f 4000 - J. J. Gilgeous ----- John Mitchel f 66 - Alves f 132 - Vendue Acct. f 179 10 Negro painters f 78 - Reid & Douglas f 132 - Massiah f 31 - Halliday & Co. f 25 - Ballard f 31 10 - C. P. Brotherson f 206 5 - This is the Statement. As the whole Business devolved upon myself I surely ought to know what was due; and can any candid person say I had any motive to secrete any thing thing [sic] that was owing. And if, as the above anonymous Writer has stated, that there appears double the amount paid that was given in, it does not arise from their then busy persevering Agent, withholding any sums due, but from some other cause. Why Mr. Gilgeous's account was left blank, was canvassed at the meeting, and explained by me that he had departed from the Verbal Agreement to which there was an Oral Evidence, and had charged in account rendered what was not just. The business of Mr. Gilgious was referred to Mr. Thos. Cuming, who instead of fixing the Account himself thought proper (which could have been done by the Committee) to appoint two Appraisers, without giving me notice of the Meeting, who could have explained away at least one of the charges, if not many others I understand the Appraisers gave Mr. Gilgious more than he charged - I surely am not to blame for this? - But I certainly take blame to myself for not entering into a Written Agreement, but it is discordant to my feelings to adopt that Worldy maxim "To deal with every Man as a Rogue," but it surely ought to have been done as I was not acting for myself alone but for the Committee and Subscribers of the English Church; notwithstanding this error for which I censure myself, I was not singular, as two of the Committee committed themselves in respect to the Pulpit; one of them so much a Man of Business as he ought to have been aware of the consequences that ensued. If Mr. Gilgious has been paid more than agreed for! - if Mr. Hadfield has received more than agreed for" let me not be censured; as I never subscribed to their accounts except the contract for the Pews - had the Members of the Committee thought proper to assist in the laborious task, there would not perhaps have been that amazing waste of American Lumber, which was from time to time delivered Mr. Gilgious, viz: - the above 20,000 to finish not 70 squares of outside work and floor, which ought to have been considered by Mr. Cuming's Appraisers; in this article and Nails I only can charge want of oeconomy. I am conscious no personal labour or attention was spared by me. The Quit-Rents from the beginning were intended to meet expences of building the Gallery and finishing the Pews. As I had no funds of the Church I advanced between 3 and f 4000 to Messrs. Huntingford and Hadfield in full expectation, when the Pews were sold and paid for, I should have been reimbursed; but there yet remain a deficiency due me. Notwithstanding what any man may now say, I never heard it suggested, nor did I ever conceive that the Quit-Rents for the Pews were sufficient to pay all the outstanding Debts, when it was well known that the whole sum the Pews sold for would hardly pay for what was due for the Pews and Gallery. The accounts given in to Mr. Robertson were mostly certified by me, and they ought all of them to have been so, as I was the only person to know if they were correct. With the above Statement I leave the Community to judge of the Business.
Kingston, 12th July 1810. J. Hicks.

My Friends and fellow Christians,
At a period like the present, when an enlightened Public, are making laudable exertions for the establishment of Religion in this Country, permit me to address myself to you in general, but more particularly, to those who have been educated as DISSENTERS, who I am credibly informed make a very large proportion of the British Inhabitants of these Colonies - let us not be behind hand with those whose modes and forms indeed differ from ours, not that we wish our exertions in the least to interfere with them, but let us step forward and seize the favorable moment when Religious liberty is by the Auspices of our Governor and Magistrates placed on the broadest basis - Let us endeavour to erect a place of Worship, and by our exertions in the Saviour's cause manifest our zeal for his Glory.
Shall it be said by the friends of Piety, where is the Religion? - Where is the zeal of Protestant Dissenters? - When all other Christians are striving to perpetuate the the [sic] establishment of Religion in this Country, they alone are inactive.
Shall the Celebrated Zeal of our pious forefathers and Brethren be thus thro' us Calumniated? - NO my friends.
Many of the Inhabitants have already most generously offered their aid in the erection of a Place of Worship. - Multitudes more would, were they but informed respecting our Religious Sentiments.
The following brief sketch of the History of Dissenters, while it illustrates our principles, may not be uninteresting:
In the Reign of Mary, Queen of England, many Pious Persons fled from persecution to the Protestant Countries on the Continent. They founded a Church at Frankford, and availed themselves of the opportunity of proceeding with the Reformation further than it was at that time in England. Their Minister was the celebrated John Knox.
When Mary was called to give an account of her administration at the tribunal of the Judge and Sovereign of the universe, the Exiles returned to their native land. With them they brought their Religion, which being dissimilar to that established by Queen Elizabeth, they formed congregations of their own and obtained the appellation of Puritans.* To these were added a fourth part of the Ministers of the establishments, who were excluded as Puritans. Among the suspended were the most learned and able Preachers.
Nothing but an unvaried scene of persecution - if we except the interregnum, marked their History till the Reign of Charles the Second, when, by the Act of uniformity, an Accession was made to their numbers, of two thousand Consciencious Ministers, who were ejected from the established Church and the name, Puritans gave place to that of Nonconformists.
This they bore till the Golden-Reign of William the third, at which period, by the Toleration Act - that Magna Charta of Religious liberty, they lost their name and oppressions together. From that AEra in their History, they have been denominated Dissenters. Their principles are now, what they were at their rise, like those of the Reformed Churches, - Calvinistic, which will appear by the Confession of Faith in use among them, and the Assembly's Catachism, which hundred of us were taught while in our Infancy.
I have thus particularly stated our principles to do away the erroneous ideas respecting them which some have entertained.
