Preamble.

Passed March 24, 1820. WHEREAS, the rector, church-wardens and vestrymen of Trinity Church, in the city of New York, have, by their petition represented, that they are seised of a certain farm, in the town of Florida, iu the county of Montgomery, (commonly called the FortHunter church farm) in trust, that they should apply the rents, issues and profits thereof towards the support or maintenance of the minister or ministers of such congregation, in communion with the protestant episcopal church, in the state of New-York, as the said

[ocr errors]

rector, church-wardens and vestrymen should think most advisable, and as should be most conducive to the promotion of religion, according to the doctrine and discipline of the said church, or if they should think most proper so to do, that they should suffer the said farm 10 be occupied as a glebe by such minister or ministers. And whereas, the said rector, church-wardens and vestrymen

Further reci have further represented, that they have for several years past per- tal. mitted the said farm to be used as a glebe by the minister of St. John's church, in Johnstown, in the county of Montgomery, but that the said farm is too remote from Johnstown, to be occupied as a glebe by the said minister : That the same is much out of repair, and will require great reparation, for the expenses of which no provision is made by the said trust, conveyance or otherwise ; and that if by any means the said farm could he put in tenantable condition, the rent would be

very

inconsiderable, compared with the interest of the money which might be obtained on a sale thereof: and that the intentions of the donors would be promoted by such sale: The said rector, church-wardens and vestrymen have therefore prayed for an act, to authorise the sale of the said farm, in which petition the corporation of St. John's church, in Johnstown, have united.

And whereas, the prayer of the said petition appears reasonable : Therefore,

BE it enacted by the People of the State of New-York, re- Monies inves presented in Senate and Assembly, That it shall be lawful for ted in stocka the said reetor, church-wardens and vestrymen of Trinity church, in the city of New York to sell the said farm, and to invest the proceeds thereof in governinent-stock or other securities, to the end that the yearly interest and income thence arising, may be forever hereafter applied in the same manner as is required by the said trust, in respect to the rents, issues and profits of the said farm.
