At a meeting of the local Board of Health for the district of the township of Barnsley, in the west riding of the county of York, held at the courthouse in Barnsley aforesaid, on Tuesday, the 9th day of May, in the year of our Lord 1865—present, Alfred Badger, James Buckley, Thomas Cope, William Day, William Hopwood, Frederick Gervis Jackson, John Ostcliffe, Charles Newman, Joseph S. Parkinson, Charles Lacey Rodgers, James Taylor—it was (inter alia)

Resolved unanimously, That this board, although representing but a small community of Englishmen, yet desires to participate in the public expression of horror and indignation at the crime of assassination, and especially when directed against the chief rulers of a nation.

The recent atrocious murder of President Lincoln, and the attempted assassination of Mr. Secretary Seward, call forth our most profound sympathy and heartfelt condolence with the government and citizens of the United States of America, deprived as they are, at a most momentous crisis in their history, of the benevolent, energetic and patriotic guidance of their late lamented President.

Signed by the above eleven members of the same local board.
