CHAPEL OF ST. NICHOLAS
TO THE EDITOR OF THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL.
SIR - In compliance with the general wishes of the Parishioners of St.
Nicholas, who seem now ashamed of the state of their only Parish Chapel, and
anxious to put it in such a condition as will afford themselves comfort, and
provide for the decency of the worship of God, I have called my Chapter
together, on Wednesday last to consult with them on the best means of
effecting so desirable an object, and they are of opinion that the
improvement being proposed should commence on next Monday.
My object in stating this to the Public through your excellent Paper is
to impress on the minds of the Parishioners at large, that it is primarily
incumbent on them to attend to the decency, comfort, and improvement of
their own Parish Church, that being the mother and mistress of all other
Churches in the Parish and that I expect on the present occasion they will
turn their individual attention to this object. - I have the honor to be,
Sir, your obedient servant.
EDMUND FFRENCH, R.C., Warden
We are truly gratified at the above Letter, and doubly so, in being
able to state to the Public, on the authority of a Member of the Chapter,
tht the Very Rev. Warden himself has generously contributed the sum of ONE
HUNDRED POUNDS towards the undertaking; and we trust that the very laudable
example of Doctor Ffrench will not be lost on the rest of the Vicars or
family of the Twon.-- EDITOR.
