The destitute condition, to which many of the Inhabitants of Albany have been reduced in consequence of the alarming Irruption of the hostile Kafir Tribes, calls loudly for the sympathy of their fellow Christians and Colonists of all denominations. The Ministers of the different Congregations have voluntarily come forward for the purpose of soliciting Contributions from their respective Congregations, and a communication will be opened with the Board of Relief in Graham’s Town as to the most eligible plan of disposing of any Sums that may be collected in Port Elizabeth.
Contributions will be thankfully received by the Revs. A. ROBSON and John SMITH at the Office of the Eastern Province Herald, and by the Undersigned
Colonial Chaplain
