And I further say that the said Guardians of the Poor of the WEST HAM Poor Law Union have incurred, or paid the of two pounds five shillings and seven pence, in and about the examination of the said Pauper Lunatic, and in conveying her to the said Asylum. And they have also incurred, or paid to the Treasure of the said Asylum, the further sum of twenty two pounds eighteen shilling ans eight pence, up to the 5th day of August for the lodging, maintenance, medicine, clothing, and care of the said Pauper Lunatic in the said Asylum, and which amount has been incurred within Twelve Calendar Months next before the day of date hereof.
And I further say that the sum of Fourteen shillings __ pence, weekly is the sum now fixed by the Committee of Visitors of the said Asylum to be paid for the future lodging, maintenance, medicine, clothing, and care of the said Lunatic.
And I have been informed and I verily believe the same to be true. That the said Sarah Christian is the lawful wife of Samuel Christian. That prior to February 1896 the said Samuel Christian resided for the term of three years at 77 and 24 St. Leonard Street in the parish, Hamlet, or Township of Bromley St Leonard in the Poplar Union, in such manner, and under such circumstances, in each of such years, as would in accordance with the several statutes in that behalf, render him irremovable therefrom and settled therein.
