Resolutions of the mayor, aldermen, and burgesses of the borough of Sudbury.

At a meeting, or court, being a quarterly meeting of the mayor, aldermen, and burgesses of the said borough, held at the Town Hall there on Friday, the 5th day of May, 1865—moved by Samuel Higgs, esq., mayor, seconded by Mr. Alderman Andrews, and

Unanimously resolved, That the following resolution, on the subject of the late lamented assassination of the President of the United States of North America, be now adopted by this meeting; and that a copy thereof, under the seal of this corporation, be sent to the Hon Charles F. Adams, the American minister, to be forwarded by him to his Excellency the President of the United States:

Resolved, That the members of this council desire to express the horror and indignation they have felt at the atrocious crime by which the late excellent and much esteemed President of the United States of North America, Mr. Abraham Lincoln, has been deprived of life, and the hope they also entertain that the great work of pacification, on which his heart was evidently set, may not be retarded by his lamented and untimely death.

Given under the seal of the mayor, aldermen, and burgesses.
