Summary.

As regards the finances of Tobago,a balanced bud-
get is necessary and revenue and expenditure must be
made to equate. The large deficits of the past few
years, must cease.

His Majesty, the King, does not consider that the
sum of 200,000 livres Tournois a year, is too much to
expect the people of Tobago to contribute towards the
necessary expenses of the Government of Tobago.

His Majesty, moreover, is pleased to allow the Re-
presentatives of Tobago in General Assembly to decide
themselves, the way this amount shall be raised from
the inhabitants.
