Appeal on behalf of the Restoration Funds of St. Margaret's and All Saints' Parish Churches, King's Lynn, by the Rt. Hon. Sir Raymond Evershed , Master of the Rolls
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Prosperity in bygone days of King's Lynn, historic Norfolk town that boasts of nineteen Royal charters, is reflected in its magnificent churches. They are a noble inheritance, but two of them—St. Margaret's and All Saints', both of which are more than 800 years old-are in urgent need of extensive renovation.
In olden days these churches were generously supported by rich local merchants and others; today the rich merchants are no more, and while the population gives according to its means, the sum of £ 30,000 that is required for the restoration of these two churches is an impossible burden for the town to carry alone.

Encouraged by his friend Lady Laura Standish, Phineas has resolved to remain in Parliament. He is, he feels sure. in love with Lady Laura; his great ambition now is to win her hand in marriage; and poor little Mary Flood Jones is already almost forgotten. That dull prig, the millionaire Mr. Kennedy, is his rival for Lady Laura's favours, but Phineas cannot believe that she will ever consider such a suitor seriously.
Anxious to rescue her fierce rebellious brother, Lord Chiltern, from his present wasteful way of living, Lady Laura has introduced him to Phineas and asked him to use his good influence. Chiltern hae proposed to Miss Violet Effingham, that lively attractive young heiress with whom he has been in love since childhood. But Violet has declared that &he will never marry him.
by R. C. Hutchdnson
