At Maybole 14 January 1851

Present

The Reverend Mr Thomson
William Brown

The teacher brought before the Meeting the following cases of arrears of the weekly payments for children.
Widow Trouselís son Thos . . 2 weeks @ 4d £ - - 8
Widow Irvineís son Wm. . . . . 2 weeks @ 2d £ - - 4
Esther Buchananís son Samuel Thomson .3 weeks @ 2d £ - - 6 -
ď - her son Edward Higgins 2 weeks @ 6d £ - 1 -
Wm Milhallís daughter Janet 3 weeks @ 4d £ - 1 - 3 / 6

Widow Trousel depends on being employed as a Labourer in filling drains and from the want of such work in the present season she says she is unable to pay up the arrears, but promises to do so, when she gets work. The Meeting are disposed to give her farther delay under the circumstances and especially as she has hitherto paid regularly.

Widow Irvineís excuse is that she has fallen behind in her rent and will pay up so soon as that is cleared off. The Meeting direct the Teacher to intimate that if the whole allowances up to Monday the 20 Current be not paid on that day her son is to be dismissed from the School. The Meeting direct the same notice to be given to Esther Buchanan and Wm Milhall .
