rplIE LADIES of tlie First Unitarian Church, 1
.1 moved by the sad condition of a large number of poor children I
in Washington, have commenced a mission, the oijject of which is to |
rescue from the streets and alleys of the worst neighborhoods us I
many um possible of that number who, cither by the misfortune, j
guilt, or negligence of their parents, or from causes incident to the j
iinpcrfe< tnoss of human society, nre growing up to swell the ranks ol \
" the dungeroun classes" of Amor lean cities.
They have rented and furnished suitable rooms in tho Fourth ward, j
employed a teacher, aud are daily receiving children, w ho, coming j
froiu uhoden ??f poverty, and often worse than poverty, by being Mir- i
fouuded during the day with a t'hri-dian atmosphere of kindness and j
forbearance, and being taught the common elementary branches ot j
education, will bo paved from great peril, und sumo of them, it is j
hoped, become very useful men and women. !
Very frequently it is found necessary to supply shoes or oilier essential |
garments, and if Hie menus could be obtained it would be desirable to j
furnish one plain, but tuilflclont meal par diem during tlie approaching '
winter. Being constantly under our supervision?except at night?
the chances for imposition are very much lessened; it is certain,
moreover tl At nothing can be wasted which gives to children the !
pmvor to r-ad the ltihle and tho constitution, or foods and warms
them, even though their parents should prove unworthy.
Wo submit thf following consideration!* to the benevolent :
* That it ii the duty of all good Christians and ull good citizens to i
take good cati* ?r tin* young, because nothing can be more dangerous
ina republic than the presence of lawless baud* of youths;
That there is not ?ulllci nt public school accommodation for the
poor children of Washington u fact too notorious to need demoiiHtrafifth.
4ud, if there were, Mill the game necessity would exist for :
winniiy Iftuse from danger who, front the poverty or neglecl of theli- i
pamit-c would nut Ue)c odtipntlqnul udyanfuges;
That it is only by direct effort among the poftr, by personal ffppftftl .
to thciu, and personal sacrjQcc for them that we can hope to clear our j
city of violence and rowdyism; aud that a proper Christian Zealand
courage can accomplish this great purpose Is fully evidenced In tho
y l?iNtaii<| present condition of " The Five Point*" in New York.
Wo have no hesitation, therefore, hi asking iM&uKii&ry ai l from all
I croons distKM?tl to help what seems to ua to bo so good a mission.
Wn pledge ourselves to the observance of a rigid economy. and our
iK'ueftictom may feel assured that every dollar will go directly to the
object, and that none uf our ftinda will bo ubsorbod in payment of
wlarlvs to retaries, dorks, agents, fcc.
