Aged Pilgrim's Friend Society

Aged Pilgrim's Friend Society, office of Sunday School Union, Old Bailey, instituted 1807, for the purpose of giving life-pensions of 10 : 10s. and 5 : 5s. to poor, aged, and infirm Protestant Christians. About 50,000 have been distributed among 1,700 pensioners since its formation; and at the present time, nearly 500 of the aged are relieved monthly to the amount of 2,500 per annum. An asylum has just been completed for 42 of the life-pensioners of the society, and the committee hope to obtain funds sufficient for commencing another to accommodate at least 80.

Income during the past year amounted to 2,440.

Treasurer, Mr. Robert Kenneth.—Hon. Secretaries, Messrs. John Box and William Jackson.
