"REJECT NONE." SrR,-At the 'beginning of the present year the com- mittee of the London Female Preventive and Reformatory Institution, 200, Euston Road, instructed the secretary to admit all suitable applicants to the Homes and Night Reception House—in fact, to reject nene, believing that God would dispose-the hearts of his people to supply the necessary funds. These directions nave been complied with, and, up to October 31st, 178 friendless females of good character were admitted to the Home established for their benefit, and 276penitent young women to the Reform- atory, while 890 poor creatures had also^been admitted to the Night Reception House. Many, very many of the latter were welcomed -during the silent 'hours of night, weary, worn, and sad; and further, the large majority were orphans, and country girls from the districts, among others, of Beds, Berks, Bucks, Derby, Essex. Gloucestershire, Hants, Herts, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Oxon, Surrey, Sussex, Somersetshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire, Wales. Theytbad passed through-much suffer- ing and shame, and, indeed, had become the mere waifs and strays of London life, tossed hither and thither by the billows of stem and apparently cruel adversity., until most mercifully they found refuge in this institutiea. A few lines are sufficient to state these bare facts; but while they are thus briefly alluded to, it is felt that in the interests of this class of suffering and fallen humanity more might well be published, for the promoters of this mission feel convinced, by the experience gained in labouring among these unhappy creatures, many of whom are mere children in years, that to God alone is known the misery represented MID the interests (moral and physical) imperilled by their position of wretchedness and danger. While London and other large towns are made the scene and centre of operations both for the supply and demand of immoral agencies, the unhappy outcasts who are afeernately the dupes and propagators of vice are draw-nifrom nearly every suburban district and country place throughout England; and therefore, sir, an appeal is made throughout the land to aid in rescuing these young womenn-om a life of sin. The demands upon the institution are very great, and the funds at its disposal incommensvatewith the urgentcalls uponit, notwithstand- ing the adoption of every means tending to thrift and economy in its working. In the accomplishment of their efforts in the time above mentioned, the committee received up to October 31st, 23,003, and expended 23,728, leaving a deficit of 2725, in liquidation of which the aid of a benevolent public is most earnestly solicited, Contributions, in postage stamps, post-office orders, cheques, and bank notes, may be addressed to Messrs Bosanquet and Co., 73, Lombard-street, E.C.; Francis Nicholls, Esq. (of the committee), 14, Old Jewry Cham- bers, E. C.; and Your obedient servant, E. W. THOMAS, Secretary. 200, Euston-road, N.W.
