Not illustrated. 1866 edition. Excerpt: ... the working men?--About one-third. 342. That would 'give each working man something more than 200/. a-piece for each of those two years?--No, no, I doubt not; I do not think you will find it to be so. 343. I am told that would be 281/.; you know that is your calculation, upon your own figures?--I tell you plain and positive that the money received was 112/. the year before last, and last year somewhere about that; if I made any mistake I did not know it, I have not done it wilful. 344.

Re-examined by Mr. GATes. 352. Your own freemen dredge this ground to the right of you?--More of our own freemen than others. 353. Your Company has been doing very well, Mr. Nicholls, and, of course, you are glad of it; everyone has been asking more
