date both societies, and to be applied for the purposes of a school, and the subscriptions hereto-
fore obtained for the finishing said building having proved considerably insufficient, that large debts
have been already incurred by said congregations, and that from the straitened circumstances of
the members thereof, they are totally incapacitated from finishing said building without the aid
of funds to be obtained otherwise than from the said societies, and praying for an act to pass to

tioned that they will well and truly apply the monies arising therefrom, within six months after
the drawing thereof, to the payment of the prizes drawn therein to the adventurers to whom
they shall be due, and the necessary expences incurred in the management thereof, and the resi-
due to the finishing of said building.

To be lodged
in the clerk's
office, &c.
