Conception Bay North - Harbour Grace

Report of the St. Vincent-de-Paul Society of Harbour Grace, 1875


The Active Members would respectfully beg to tender their thanks to the general public for their continued liberality in aid of the funds of the Society.

As intimated in last year's Report, a Factory was established under the superintendence of the Society, in which a daily average of fifty persons (consisting of widows and orphan children) was employed, at remunerative wages, from early in January till the end of April In addition to those employed in the Factory, a number of poor persons were also employed at their homes, in picking oakum from material provided for them.

The Society is deeply indebted to Messrs. John Munn & Co., for the assistance afforded in purchasing, at paying prices, the nets and oakum manufactured for the Society.

One hundred and ten families, representing four hundred and seventy-four persons, were visited during the year. The sums paid for out-door relief, labor in Factory, &c., amounted to 244 12 1.

We have to acknowledge the continuance of the grants of 30 from the House of Assembly.

In conclusion, the Society would respectfully solicit a renewal of the public support so liberally accorded to this practical charity since it's establishment.

W.J. S. DONNELLY, President
A.T. DRYSDALE, Secretary
