License for a private boat made out to Major Honner. The name of Naval Officer Edward Foord Bromley is printed on the document. Bromley was suspended from office on 11 Oct. 1824, so it must have been printed before that date. It was issued by acting Naval Officer William Hamilton on 8 Jan. 1825.

General Rules, adopted by the Teachers’ Meeting, May 11, 1824.
Ferguson 993a. Original is in TAHO NS499. Description based on photocopy in TSL.
The rules, printed in narrow columns, have been cut out from some earlier printing and pasted into the Minute book of the Wesleyan Sunday School Union. Rule xii states that the Secretary shall furnish every teacher received into the Union with a copy of the general rules; and the School Secretary shall furnish the Parent or Guardian of every child with a copy of the rules for internal Government. This suggests that, as Ferguson assumed, the rules were originally printed as a broadside.
There is also another photocopied sheet which reproduces two Appendices: Form of the report of Absentees Apr. 25 1824, and Form of school secretary’s monthly report presented to the committee April 13 1824. It is possible these were originally been part of the third Annual Report.
