The minutes of last meeting were read and approved of.

The Poor Roll was then examined and declared as follows - 

James Peebles, aliment per month 10/-
Widow Whittet  " "

with occasional assistance to Mary Cerar at the rate of 10/- per month.

The Treasurer's Books were examined and found correct, and the entries properly vouched; And it was found that the sum of twenty six pounts 5/- including the collection's percentage, will be required for the next six months. The Heritors agreed to assess themselves for the above sum, and authorised their Clerk to collect the same.
