and indeed wished, that these demands should continue. A rapidly increasing population, the general diffusion of education according to the principles of the Established Church, and the greater accommodation which has lately been made for attendance on Public Worship, in some Parishes within the District, are causes which severally tend to this effect; and, considering the character of the books which are issued, it cannot fail to afford a very pure satisfaction to every benevolent mind.
The Committee congratulate the friends of the Institution on the increasing amount of subscriptions, which enables them to supply every demand in the fullest manner; and to furnish gratnitously to the prisoners in the gaol, at Horsham, and to the inmates of the United Workhouse, at Preston, (both situate within the District,) and to a few Schools which have strong claims upon the Committee, such books as their several circumstances require.
The Committee have issued, since their formation in 1815, three thousand seven hundred and seventy-two Bibles AND TESTAMENTS, nearly seven thousand PRAYER BOOKS, and thirty-four thousand seven hundred other Books and Tracts; and it is very encouraging to them in their exertions, to be assured that they have been the medium of imparting much information and comfort to many grateful and pious minds.
The Committee rely with confidence on a continuance of the support they have hitherto obtained, and will endeavour to administer the Funds entrusted to their management in such manner as shall be most conducive to the object of their appointment.
