A Hundred Years Ago
TILE " SPECTATOR," MARCH 10TFI, 1832, A PROMPT CONGREGATION.
On Sunday last, at Trinity Church, Sloane Street (containing about 1,300 sittings, 800 of which are free), the Rev. H. Blunt, without any previous notice, called upon his congregation to con. tribute towards the sufferings of their distressed neighbours ; and the answer to this call was a collection made after the sermon of 1491. Those who happened to be unprovided with money, wrote the sum they would contribute on their cards, which they put into the plate.
