[Clergymen's Widows and Children]

There are in London the "Corporation for relief of poor Widows and Children of Clergymen," established in Charles II's, reign ; a " Society for maintaining and educating poor Orphans of Clergymen till of age to be put apprentice ;" and an Institution to give more effect to the first-named Corporation for the protection of "Widows and Children of Clergymen in the diocese of London." Most properly, they are well patronised; and the occasional display in St. Paul's is very gratifying.
