|Notes:||"Signed on behalf of the committee, Shaftesbury, chairman. Samuel Morley, treasurer. Michael Angelo Garvey, hon. secretary.

"June 26th, 1861. The committee having learned that Dr. Cheever is shortly about to return to New York, record their regret that the outbreak of Civil War in America, and the consequent reluctance of all classes in this country to interfere in any matter likely to compromise the neutrality of the British people in the impending conflict, renders it unadvisable at the present juncture to make any public appeal on behalf of Dr. Cheever. ... It is therefore resolved:--That Dr. Cheever be presented with a piece of plate, as a tangible memorial of their sentiments; and that the remainder of the money in the treasurer's hands be given to Dr. Cheever, with this record of the feelings of the committee. ... S. Morley, treasurer, in the chair. M.A. Garvey, hon. sec."--p. .
