his own aggrandizement, but rather that of
the Community: We feel warranted in commissioning him to go forth amongst
the faithful, as our agent to gather up and receive such means in money or
otherwise as shall enable him us to meet our
engagements which are now about to devolve upon us, in con sequence of our
purchases here for the Church, and we humbly trust that our brethren
generally will enable him to come to our assistance before our credit
shall suffer on this account.
