£ 87 2 3 A Sunda y Evening Lecture has been established , in addition to the two services of the day at this Chapel , which is proposed to be continued during- the winter . The subjects are intended to be chiefly confined to the particular views of the

unjust prejudices that are entertained against them through ignorance be subdued . Two eveningV Lectures have been already delivered , which have beea extremely well attended . m . l . y .
