had no objection to the returns, and he would take the opportunity of stating that he had learnt with great satisfaction, within the last day or two, from the Lord Mayor of London, that parties connected with the British and American Land Company had contributed several sums for the relief of the emigrants.
The Lord Mayor
was happy to announce that he had received contributions from the Duke of Argyll, the Marquess of Downshire, and Sir Robert Broun, in sums of 50,1., 30l, and 25l., making together a sum of 105l. He believed that other gentlemen connected with the association would also contribute, so that the emigrants would be substantially relieved.
§ Returns ordered.
