The above amount of profits is due from subscribers, and also nearly 400 Dollars more which is due to Lincoln & Gleason, being the balance of their account for printing, &c. above what they have received.
It is hoped that delinquent subscribers, when they see what large sums are due, on this and the former statement will exert themselves to pay their balances soon, that the inoney may be paid into the Treasury of the Missionary Society of Connecticut, and be put out to interest.
Donations to the Missionary Society of Connecticut.
