erecting a building worthy of the Y.M.C.A. and which shall be fit

card together with some circulars – so that you are now equipped for
the work of collecting a sum (which we trust will not be less than
£5) to be placed on the memorial stone which is to be laid by the
Attorney-General (Sir Richard Webster) on Wednesday Nov. 4th. 1896.
Please note 1st.- We have written on your card the names of a

personally or by letter.

Christian Club for the large number of young men who have left
their homes in the country or country towns and who are now
in lodgings or in houses of business in this city – the metropolis
of the North.
