1st The Commissioners will be prepared to
recommend grant of equal
amount to the sum Mr Gage proposes
to subscribe, - and should further sums
be contributed additional grants may be obtained.
2nd The Commissioners will only hold
the committee acountable for the
expenditure of such sums as are placed
at their disposal for administering
relief, and not for any sums which
may be placed at the [indididually?]
disposal of its members.
3rd If the committee consider it unnecessary
to require the attendance of the clerk
it need not be enforced, but no
irregularity should be permitted on this
4th The distribution of rations for more
than one day yet is apprehended will lead
to many abuses but if the Finance
Committee and the Inspecting officer
consider the circumstances to warrant a
deviation from the daily [?] the commissioners
will not object.
