In submitting my Report to the Board hereon, I

the Haberdashers' Company, nor any member of it, has
any property within or near tiie proposed district.

CITY OP LONDON LIVEKT COMPANIES COMMISSION;



11. That all reasonable and neceasary expenses inci-
dental to the carrying out this scheme (except such as
shidl be properly chargeable to the borrowers) shall be
borne and paid out of the Trust fund, or out of any
interest to be made therefrom while in hand, until the same
shall be so lent out as aforesaid.

12. That the articles of this scheme shall be printed and
put up in the hall of the Company.

13. That the said book shall be open to the inspection



of all or any of the members of the said Company at all
reasonable times without expense.

The order then proceeded to direct that the interest to
be received in respect of such loans should be appropriated
to the purposes directed by the several donors.

After the taxation of the costs the sum was reduced to
945/. lOs. l\d, cash, which was invested to tbe purchase
of 944/. 7s. 3d,, 31. yet cent. consoJs. In obedience to



I wish also to mention that, at my interview with the
master and wardens, I nused the question whether any
assistance might be expected to be obtained from other
proprietors in the district, or from the inhabitants, now or
at some future tune, and also whether assistance might not
be obtainable from the Ecclesiastical Conunissioners in aid
of the endowment fund and the parsonage house. I also
suggested whether, in the event of any difficulty as to the
funds, part only of the church — probably the nave— should
for the present be proceeded with. It appeared, however,
to be the desiie of the master and wardens to act inde-
pendently, and without having recourse to extraneous
assistance, at least for the present. It was also their desire
that the building should be proceeded with at once in its
entiretv.

A wish was also expressed by the master that he might
be enabled to make arrangements for laying the first stone
of the building before going out of office, towards the end
of the present month.
