A General Meeting of the
This afternoon.
The fubferibers having been appointed
by their fellow-citizens, to prepare and
report an Instrument expreflive of the pub
lic thanks, for the ferviccs which were
rendered by the Committee of Health,
during- the calamity that lately affli&ed the
City and neighborhood of Philadelphia ;
and to suggest the measures proper to be
pursued, in order to carry the recom
mendation of that benevolent Committee
into effect, deem it their duty again to
call the attention of the citizens to a fub
jeft so interesting to the community upon
principles of gratitude, honor and policy.
At the meetings which have been hi
therto summoned, there have not attend
ed a fufficient number of Citizens U> ex
press the public sentiment; owing, it is
prolumcd, to a general acquirfcence in
the plan which has been proposed and
published : But as the fubferibers cannot
think themselves warranted in proceeding
further, upon this important occaiion,
without the express approbation of their
Fellow-Citizens—they request a General
Meeting to be held at the City-Hall, at
5 o'clock This jlflernoon.
It will be remembered, that unlefr the
citizens attend agreeably to the above
appointment, the molt meritorious servi
ces mult pass unacknowledged. A nume
rous class of Orphans will probably be in
volved in great distress, and even the ba
lance due to the Committee of Health
must remain unpaid.
