Extract from the minutes of a meeting of the town council of the borough of Buckingham, held on Monday the 1st day of May, 1865.

That this council desires to express the deep feeling of abhorrence at the dreadful crime committed in America by the assassination of the President of the United States, and its sympathy with the people of America in the sad and mournful event; and, at the same time, to indulge the hope that the establishment of a lasting peace throughout the entire republic may not be jeopardized or delayed by the awful calamity.
