new bnildingB, and to provide the remainder of such
cost by means of a loan or loans to be raised and bor-
rowed by the trustees either upon the security of the
Charity estate or a competent part thereof or in such
other manner as the said Commissioners shall sanction

able regulations as they shall from time to time think

said chapel, shall be applicable towards the maintenance
of the cnapel and its services and the payment of the

omit to elect and nominate to the trustees a duly
qualified candidate for appointment to the almshouse
as aforesaid within the period of three calendar months

of the stipend to the almsperson either wholly or in
part, during such time as they shall think fit and
expedient.

12. No almsperson shall be permitted to let or part

superstitious charges (confirmed by the Statute of the
4tn James L, for which see my report on the Fish-

to the Company lOOZ. to pay to foni* poor women 5«. each

The Company pay 41. a year, which is given in sums
of IZ. a year each to four poor widows of freemen. These

larger sum to the particular pensioners. I have else-
where stated the number of widow pensioners and theu'
amounts.

James Church, by a deed poll of the 16th Jannanr

youug men, gratis, and to pay interest on the remaining
300Z., at 4 per cent, to 12 poor men and 12 poor

Lothbury, being selected by the court and receiving

And the said F. Clarke, in 1609, gave a further sum
of 2002. to the Company to pay 102. a year to St.
Bartholomew's Hospital.

There are no specific funds representing this capital,
but 102. a year is paid to the churchwardens of the



The trustees may, if they so think fit, require that
the chaplain shall provide for the performDance of two
full services in the said chapel on each Sunday, and
thev may in that case make such an additional payment
to him out of the income of the Charity, if sufficient
for that purpose, as shall make up his full yearly
stipend to any sum not exceeding 150l

18. The chaplain shall visit and administer spiritual
consolation to the almspeoplo, and shall have the imme-
diate superintendence and control over them, subject to
the superior authority and direction of the trustees. The
chaplain shall also once at least in each year make a report
to the trustees upon the state and condition of the
almshouse branch of the Charity, mentioning in such
report any special circumstances which shall in his
judgment call for attention on the part of the trustees.

19. The chaplain may be removed from his office by
a resolution of the trustees for incapacity or refusal or
omission to perform the duties of such office, or for
any oiher sufficient cause to be determined by the
trustees. During the temporary legal absence of the
ch&plain the duties of the office may bo performed by
a duly qualified substitute to be appointed by him subject
to the approval of the trustees.

20. The trustees may pay out of the income of the
Charity a yearly sum not exceeding 162. for the salary

not exceeding 252. in lighting and warming the said
chapel, and pnfviding "and maintaining the requisite
furniture, books, and utensils, and for the other expenses

21. The trustees may from time to time prescribe
Bach reasonable regulations as they may consider ex-
pedient for the government of the almshouse and the
inmates, officers, and attendante thereof, provided that
DO such rules shall be inconsistent with the provisions
of this scheme.

22. Out of the clear yearly income of the Charity
which shall remain after providing for and satisfying

tees shall reserve and set apart a yearly sum of 1202.,
