Transcription

Parish of St. Pancrasin the county of Middlesex.

At a general meeting of the vestrymen of the said parish, held at the vestry hall, King’s road, Pancras road, on Wednesday, the 10th day of May, 1865—Mr. Churchwarden Robson in the chair and sixty-eight other vestrymen present—it was moved by John R. Collins, esq., pursuant to notice, seconded by Henry Farber, esq., F. S. A., and

Resolved unanimously, That this vestry desires to express its feelings of grief and horror at the untimely death of President Lincoln, by the hands of an assassin, and to avow its high appreciation of the great ability, moderation, and patriotism displayed by him as Chief Magistrate of the United States of America, at a period of extraordinary civil commotion. This vestry desires further to express its deep sympathy with the widow and family of the late President, and also with the people of the United States, in being thus ruthlessly deprived of the guiding influence of so high-principled a statesman at a time of national difficulty and distress, and would fervently hope that the wise and moderate policy of Abraham Lincoln may be adopted by both President and people in the pacification of their distracted country.

The common seal of the vestry of the parish of St. Pancras, Middlesex, affixed hereto by order of the said vestry.

[seal.]

FRANCIS PLAW,
Vestry Clerk.
