Tlw Committee, however, are preveoled at the present from rnleriiig upon this branch of duty to Ihe extent they could wish, by Ihe impossibility of forming, in this early stage of Iheir pruceediiigs, any correct estimate of the aiiionnt uf expenses, immediate and contingent, which Ihe number of individuals admitted al Lundou-wall,and the pe> cnliarily of some uf their cases may call for; hut having abundant information of the extreme misery which exists iu many parts uf Ihe metropolis, aud uf Ihe number of unforlu-nale f.tmilies, who, though not driven from their homes, are pining without the common neceasariea which nature and the season require; they are aiutious lo extend lo � hem also Ihe most prompt and elTectual assistance, which their arrangements in London-wall, and, aa Ihey hope and trust, Ihe ruulinued liberality of the public, will enable them lu bestow. In doing lliis, it may be advisable for the Cummitue to avail themselves �f Ihe experience and personal assistance of some of the managers of charitable iusli-tulions in the metropolis, as it will, iu all probability, be found that Ihe actual situaliou and degrees of suffering iu so numerous a class as that last alluded to, will he more efHcirnlly investigated by established or local insliluliuus, than by the most strenuous exertions of any one general assurialiou. Such nte the views and Ihe designs of Ibe Committee, which Ihey Irusi will he found to agree irilb the original de. sign of Ihe promoters of this Charily. It has been their sincere desire to keep good faith with the public, and lo distribute a fund,, wliicb has exceeded the most sanguine txpectaliuna of every one, even in this age uf Charity, in that manner which, if it were possible to consult them, would best accord with Ihe inlentiiius aud wishes uf the Subscribers llitoisrivcs.
