--Rev. George Woodbridge
has received from a little girl — Jane Harold
— the sum of five hundred dollars,
the proceeds of a fair gotten up by her, and to be appropriated to the Female Orphan Asylum
The gift is an acceptable one, and teaches other girls what may be effected by perseverance in a good cause.
Would that the youth of both sexes could feel the importance of industry and economy at this time, and that mature age could be made to see the importance of properly appropriating the spare means at their command.
The prayers of the orphans will be heard for this little girl, and the consciousness that she has added to their comfort will more than repay her labors in holding the fair.
