The accounts having been examined and passed, the following paragraphs of the Committee's minutes of 28th December, 1832, and 6th February, 1833, were read by the Secretary and Treasurer, and entered.
December 28th, 1832. “ The Committee having met, commence proceedings by the examination of the “ current account closing 31st instant, on which a balance in hand is set forth of Rs. “ 3145-7-8, and shewing the receipts for nine months to have been (exclusive of Rs.
450, the produce of the sale of a Missionary building), Rs. 3343-1, or monthly aver
age of Rs. 371-7-2; the expenses for the same period of catechist, schools and books, "amount to Rs. 647-9-4, or a monthly average of Rs. 71-15-3. Exclusive of the above " balance of Rs. 3145-7-8, is the sum of Rs. 1309-6-7 received from Rev. Messrs. E. White " and J. Whiting. In reference to proceedings at the General Meeting held on the 27th *** March last, also Rs. 1800 at interest, receivable from the Venerable Archdeacon “Corrie, making the grand total (not precisely to be ascertained pending information
relative to the last item, but exceeding), Rs. 6000. Of the monthly expenditure aver"aged as above, at Rs. 71-15-3, the native catechist, who is in constant employ, " receives 30 Rs. and Rs. 41-15-3, have been applied to two schools for boys, one of “which (until the relief of horse artillery took place), had above 50 scholars, regular " attendants: the other has 38; and a girls' school established on 15th September, " which latter is at present merely experimental.”
The amount of regular monthly subscription has been on an average Rs. 62-12-5, but the Committee trusts it may after the nexi General Meeting exceed the ordinary expenditure, and thus admit of the sacramental collections and sums received from neighbouring stations (which have been very liberal), being solely appropriated to the ulterior object in view, namely, the establishment here, on a permanent footing, of an ordained Missionary.
February 6th, 1833. The state of the fund on the 2nd January, 1833, was as follows, exclusive of Sonat Rs. 1800, remitted June 30th, 1831, at interest and under charge of the Venerable Archdeacon Corrie. Total Sonat Rupees
