borough of shrewsbury.
Resolutions passed at a meeting of the mayor, aldermen, and burgesses, in council assembled, on the 8th day of May, 1865.
That this council desires to record their unanimous concurrence in the feelings of horror, detestation, and regret entertained throughout the length and breadth of this kingdom, at the late atrocious murder of the Chief Magistrate of the United States of America, and in those sentiments of sorrow and sympathy which have already been expressed on this most melancholy event by our most gracious sovereign, and by all classes of her subjects, towards the family, the friends, and the fellow-countrymen of Mr. President Lincoln.
That this resolution be duly sealed and signed by the mayor, and transmitted to the minister of the United States in this country.
