Transcription

At a public meeting of the inhabitants of the town and borough of Swansea, held at the Guildhall, in the said town, on Thursday, the 4th day of May 1865, it was

Unanimously resolved, That this meeting desires to manifest its profound abhorrence and indignation at the great crime by which the United States of America have been deprived of their late Chief Magistrate, Abraham Lincoln; and, further to express its unfeigned sympathy with the government and people of the United States, and the widow and family of the late President, in the depth of their calamity and bereavement.

J. CLARKE RICHARDSON,
Mayor.
