Our Appeal

For the successful prosecution of our labors, we appeal to the following classes of our fellow countrymen, and we presume they are sufficiently numerous to fulfil our expectations:

To the religious—who profess to walk in the footsteps of their Divine Master, and to be actuated by a love which worketh no ill to others. To whom, if not to them, shall we turn for encouragement?

To the philanthropic—who show their sincerity by their works, whose good deeds are more numerous than their professions, who not only pity but relieve.

To the patriotic—who love their country better than themselves, and would avert its impending ruin.

To the ignorant, the cold-hearted, the base, the tyrannical—who need to be instructed, and quickened, and reclaimed, and humanized.
