Most of you Imvo already learned from
announcements heretofore mado in tho
papers of tho oity, thatn Sunday School
convention, for thu Southern part of our
rjtate, will bo held In Cairo on the Gth
7th, mid tMh of next month, tho partial.
!ars concerning which will bu found in the
general address of the undersigned pub
lished in Tiik lU i.r.KTi.v mid Sun.
From that address. It will Imj seen that
It will devolvu upon tho citizens of Cairo,
friendly to tho Sunday School cause, to en
tertain or accommodate all persons In
attendance upon thu convention, from u
distance; mid as It Is liellevcd that tho
number of such will bu quite large, It Is
hoped that all who can, cheerfully re
spond to the call which will be mado upon
tlr.'iu by tho committees In the different
wards of thu city, to ascertain who will en
tertain persons attending the coiivoutloiu
mid tho number each family can accoiiimo
datu. Committees appointed by thu under
nlgucd tor the different wards, will
call upon the citizen, between thin time
mid the last of thu month, for the purposes
mentioned; und tho unduriiigned commit
teu of arrangements, beg the privilege of
asking, in view of tho great work intended
to bo furthered by thu convention In
which our city has no ccondury Interest,
that the citizens of Cairo will respond to
tho call thus madu as liberally ut their
means and ucootumodatlous will allow.
Asrtutcd in thu general nddrs referred
to, the convention will bo hold in tbu Mar
ket Houc, which thu committee
expect - to lit up and prcparu In
a manner entirely suitable and convenient
for the holding of tlio convention ; and con
sidering tlio number of person that will
very probably bu in attendance, and thu
persons who will generally conduct tho
oxurcUes of the convention, whoso reputa
tion Is by no means confined to our own
State, It is confidently oxpucted by tint
