Transcription

Tuesday, April 18, 1865.

Resolution passed by the council of the corporation of the city of Toronto, Canada.

Resolved, That this council, on behalf of the citizens of Toronto, deplore the impious act that has convulsed society, in the death, by violence, of Abraham Lincoln, late President of the United States of America. Esteeming the same a national calamity, they mournfully sympathize with his countrymen, and recognizing in them a great co-operating Christian power, feel deeply sensible of the melancholy gloom it must create. And further, that in honor of the dead the business of the city be suspended for two hours from noon on Wednesday, tomorrow.

Truly extracted from the journals of the council.
