At a very numerous meeting of the Proprietors of Lots in the Town of Cumingsburg, held at the Union Coffee House on Saturday the 23d July 1808, to hear from the Commissaries the Extract from the Resolutions of the Court of Policy of the 27th April 1808, and such Extract having been read,
Thomas Delisle, Esq. [centered]
was unanimously voted into the Chair which having taken, he requested to know from Mr. Thos: Cuming if he had any proposal to make to the Proprietors of the Town.
Mr. Cuming proposed that the Town should renew the Contract which had been made with him, allowing him to pay Taxes for his Lots at the valuation of only f 250 each, in which case he would resign all pretentions to the mud Lots.
The Proprietors by no means consented to Mr. Cuming's proposal in its unqualified state, but offered to do so if he would give up his right of Voting for two-thirds of the number of Lots he possesses in the Town and in future to have Votes only for one-third of the number, which Mr. Cuming having accepted of, the following Resolutions were put and carried, viz: -
Resolved - That the Commissaries in behalf of the Proprietors of the Town of Cumingsburg be authorised to enter into a Contract with Mr. Cuming by which they engage to give up all claim they hold against him for arrears of Taxes and allow him to pay for his Lots at the valuation of f 250 per Lot, on the condition of his giving up two-thirds of the number of Votes he now, or at any future time may hold and renouncing in toto all claims to the mud Lots.
Resolved, - That the Commissaries be authorised to Petition the Court of Policy for a statement of the Account between the Receiver and the Town of Cumingsburg, and to authorise some Person to give Transports for the mud Lots to such Person as shall produce the Certificate of any two of the Commissaries that they have complied with their Contract for the same.
Resolved - That as two of the Commissaries Messrs. Bell & Fitzgerald have given an order on the Receiver for the amount of an old debt due to Mr. John Wilson and the Receiver having protested such order; that the Commissaries be authorized (in case it appears that no funds are in the hands of the Receiver) to levy a tax agreeable to the appraisement lately acted upon, for the payment of the Town's proportion of the front or mud Lots; which are the width of the Streets leading to the River.
