THE undernamed committee, appointed bv
SUNDAY SCHOOLS in the city of Philadel
phia and ihe diftrift of Southwark and the
Northern Liberties," to solicit further fubfenp
tiona for the support of the fchooli which the
'° c "'y cftijyhfhed, take the liberty to
represent to their fellow citiaeos—
Tfcat, although the fchooW were suspended
during the period of the late awful calamity
with which our «ity and suburbs have been af
flifled, they are now again opened for the free
ad million and education of poor children.
That, the neceflity and rtafona for the eflab
lifhment *f these school* are increafrd, from the
circumstance of the late distress having left a
number of Orphans deUitut* of all the means
of education, save what the hand of benevolence
may administer.
That, former experience has, mod pleasingly,
verified the fondeft hopes of the friends of this
institution, with regard to the progrefa and ad
vancement of the children, who hav* heretofore
been under its care, in the ufeful branches of
education which it has afforded. Referring to
this fact, and to the address to the public, on
this fubjr&, pubhfhed in the newspapers of thia
city >n the third month last, when about eight
hundred and twenty children of both sexes h*d
partaken of the benefits afforded by the society,
and about three hundred and twenty mora were
then actually receiving inftru&ion in their
schools, it now only remains to be observed,
that the funds of the society are greatly infuffi.
cicnt to carry on their benevolent designs, and
that the committee formerly appointed to solicit
fubferiptionf, conceived it neciflWy to decline
k- r a PP'' ca^®n * lo iheir fellow-citir.ens for
their afliftance in favor of these schools, in order
that theie might be no interruption from them
to the solicitations then made in behalf of their
iflifortunate brethren from Cape-Francois.
The public aid_is now therefore e.arneftly so
licited to eftablifhmenr, cal
culated upon thf^rfheipleiof public and pri
vate good. TUV annual fubjficription for a mem.
her is but Otje Dollar; ajid it is prefumcd thai
so small a sum per annum cannot be better di£
posed of, by those who can afford it, than by
bestowing it as the price of the diffufion of ufeful
knowledge among the p«or and friendlefs.
Subfcnptipni and donations will be gratefully
received by the undernamed committee on be
half of the society:

P*OR the benefit of those nrho maybe con
cerned it may not be improper to (jotice,
that the United States, by their Art of the lath
of February 1793, ordered t(iat all Clai ms ot*

originated previous to the 4th of March 1789:

as there may be several Creditors of the Uni
ted States, holding Certificates or other Se
curities, which form a part of tbe Domeftit
Debt, and who wifli tq fu'ofcribe to the Loan,
they are reminded that the term for receiving
fublcriptions at the Treasury, is by tbe Art of
the United States, pafied the ffecond of March
last, extended to the last day of fnne, 1794*
The following is an extaft front the Art of
