Excerpt from Proceedings Relating to the Establishment of Parochial Councils of Charity in the Union, and Charity Organisation District, of St. Georges, Hanover Square, in February, March, and April, 1871

I confess we were rather at a loss to understand how we should benefit largely from the introduction of laymen. We do not think that the district visitors deserve to be spoken of as giving relief in an unequal and comparatively unaided way. No clergyman can have any objection to be assisted by laymen. My district, however, differs from others in the parish. Very few men in my district have any time to give to the work, as we have not many rich. I am, therefore, obliged to depend on the assistance of the ladies, of whom I have a very large staff. We allot ten or twelve families to each, and we flatter ourselves we do not succeed badly. I regret the words pauperised and de moralised population. I presume it is meant only to apply to a segment of the whole; but, as it stands, it applies to the whole and I must hold up my hand against adjectives of that sort being applied to the whole.
