Folded half-sheet, first verso and conjugate leaf blank. Drop-head title. Holy Trinity, Portland Road, designed by Soane and built in 1826--1827, was the most expensive of the four 'new churches' built in Marylebone by the Church Building Commission, leading to prolonged negotiations over cost and eventually to the vestry's decision to raise of the sum of £1280 for the addition of a stone balustrade round the church by voluntary subscription, sanctioned by Soane who 'has liberally agreed to have the work performed at cost price' and within budget. See M.H. Port, Six hundred new churches: the Church Building Commission 1818--1856 (Reading: Spire, 2006), pp. 76--78. Includes a list of 'Subscriptions Already Received', headed by the Duke of Portland; the time for receiving subscriptions was limited to one month. The text of the circular was also printed as a flyer (q.v.).
