numerous or to involve any great expenditure of
money. This is to a certain extent accounted
for by the fact, that the Parish has
been for many years indebted to the judicious
management of a Paving Board and Sewers
Commission, now merged in the Yestry, which
reduces the principal works to be performed, rather
to the maintenance of those already in existence,
than of executing new ones. Another reason
for the absence of any large outlay of money or
expensive works, is the very great care that is at
all times exercised by the Yestry, and as carefully
seconded by the Works Committee, that no
outlay shall be made, or expense incurred, unless
the same shall be found upon due investigation
to be at least advisable, if not, as in most instances,
actually necessary; at the same time it will be borne
in mind that this very circumstance proves that
a great amount of attention has been devoted
even to the smallest items, and that an outlay
of five pounds has received as much patient
deliberation as an amount of five hundred.
A few matters have during the last twelve
months, prominently presented themselves not only
