A CARD.

The Seamen's Friend Society of Oswego village have just established a Library for the benefit of the Seamen belonging to and visiting this Port, designed to promote their intellectual, moral and religious improvement. They have been enabled to do this through the kindness of some of the friends of Seamen in this and other places. Mr. Peter A. Smith has been appointed Librarian. The books are kept at his Store, corner of Taurus and Water streets, West Oswego, where Seamen wishing to avail themselves of the advantages of the Library will please call and enter their names. The Trustees would respectfully solicit from those persons who are willing to aid in the support and enlargement of this Library, donations either in money, or in books suitable for the purpose. They can be left with Mr. Smith, or at the store of Mr. Griffing. There are books in almost every private library, which are of little use to the owner, and which might do much good if thrown in here. The interest manifested by many of the Seamen in this effort for their improvement, is truly encouraging, and affords an assurance that whatever may be done for them in this way will be duly appreciated.

Oswego, Jan. 25, 1835

L.B. CROCKER,
EDWIN W. CLARK,
EDWARD GRIFFING,
Trustees of the Bethel Library.
