had in it was refolvcd that their collector have power to anfwer any to the amount of 2000 drawn on hira by that towards procuring greater plenty of fifh by land Aprilathe the Society adjudged the premium for the beii fifhcarriage for the On the i6th of May the firft load was brought to and on the i9th of the fame the town was regaling with foals at a moderate and the Society Sanguine in their hopes of ferviug the public to Biake appiied to them to let him have 1500 without which he knew lay dead in the and offered to give Security to repay it on fix months which was accordingly It is to be that in a few days after the firit rtfolution of the 4th of Blake drew ou the collector for the whole fum of 1000 at once that the proper carriage was not fixed on by the Society until the iSth of 1762 that the firft load of fifh arrived on the i6th of May at which time but a very few carriages could have been made and on the ipth of the fame he applied for the Sum of 1500 How far it wa neceflary to have fo considerable a fum will appear by the following abfiraft of firft which was published the Gazetteer of the 8th of 1762 by which it that the quantity of fiih brought to the i6th cf
