It was particularly recommended to the committee, to use their utmost exertions to obtain donations for the purpose of completing the additional buildings, as all the friends of the Institution are convinced, that it can never attain that excellence of which it is capable, until the young pupils can reside in the house, under the immediate inspection of the Governors;

AND IT WAS ORDERED,

That another address should be made to the public in favour of the Charity, by a pamphlet, or by advertisement in the neighbouring provincial papers, in hopes, that when the public are apprized of the great importance of the ADDITIONAL BUILDINGS, and of the Contributions hitherto received, liberal as they have been, proving inadequate to complete and furnish them, and that the sum of from £2500 to £3000 is still wanted, such VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS may be received, as to enable the committee to complete this most desirable object.
