This Society, founded in 1838, seeks to reclaim young Women from all parts of the country who have, by one false step, fallen from the path of virtue. They are cared for in their trouble, if expecting to become mothers; and, after suitable training, are placed in service, where needful help is given them in supporting their infants, lest, through want, they should fall again into sin. This is the more necessary from the extreme youth of many of the applicants, which prevents their earning sufficient to maintain their infants. 
Subscriptions and Donations are earnestly solicited.
Cheques should be "crossed' Messrs. Sir S. SCOTT, Hart., & Co., Post Office Orders payable to GBORGE SCUDAMORE, at the Western Branch District Post Office, Vere Street, Oxford Street, W.
GEORGE SCUDAMORE, Secretary.
