[51] Mrs Critchley the tenant of the Company's house at Bristol Road Wharf having signified her intention of giving up her tenancy to her son-in-law James Williams, at Lady day,
Resolved, that he be accepted as tenant from that date at £10 per annum, payable quarterly subject to a quarters notice on either side to expire any quarter day.

Thames & Severn Canal Cos Bill
[52] The Committee cannot but regret that the expense of the Millowners Petition (which was not contemplated by the Committee) was incurred without the question of Locus Standi having been more considered: bearing in mind what has taken place in reference to that petition the Committee hesitate in proceeding with our petition unless upon advice more definite than that contain in Messrs Martin & Leslie's letter of the 14^th March last.
It seems to this Committee doubtful if a Parliamentary Committee would consider the question of a readjustment of tonnages in reference to a Bill which alone empowers the Thames and Severn Canal Co to raise more money to put their Canal in repair, and the Committee would wish to be more satisfied on that position before continuing their opposition. It is therefore Resolved, that this Meeting be adjourned to Thursday the 27^th inst, at 3,o,clock pm, to have a more definite opinion from Messrs Martin & Leslie.
