the general Subscription

We have the pleasure to be informed, that the general Subscription for the relief of the Poor, set on foot among the opulent tradesmen, &c., already amounts to 215l. 15s. 6d. and will begin next week to be distributed amongst the Poor in bread, by letting each poor House keeper who applies to the Committee, (and who receives no collection from parishes) have a twelve-penny loaf delivered weekly, at the price of six pence, till the whole stock be gradually sunk.
