PETITION FOR CHARITY exCHANGE.

Petition.

PETITION by a Charity to the Bishop of the Diocese, praying for a Commission to inquire into a proposed Exchange under the Act of the 1 $2 Geo. 4, c. 92 (a).

To The Right Rev. Father In God, , Lord Bishop Of .

THE HUMBLE PETITION of the Governors of &c. [full title of the charity] sheweth—

Statement of creation and objects of charity;

That his late Majesty King , by his letters patent,

bearing date , willed and granted that &c. [statement

of the letters patent, so far as to shew the incorporation, the grant of lands, and the objects of the charity (6).

As to the application to the bishop of the diocese to authorize an exchange of charity lands.

(a) The 2nd section of the statute referred to in this and the last Precedent requires, as a preliminary to any exchange of charity lands, that an application shall be made by the trustees to the bishop of the diocese in which the charity lands proposed to be given in exchange are situate, stating the objects of the charity, the manner in which the lands have become vested in the trustees, the reason for which it is fit and proper that such exchange shall be made, and the benefit to be derived for the objects of the charity by means of such exchange. The statement is to be verified on oath, and the bishop, after making such preliminary inquiries as he may choose, and being satisfied with the result, is to issue a commission to inquire whether, and for what reasons, the proposed exchange will be beneficial to the charity. The Precedent in the text is of such an application, and is framed with a regard to the requisites prescribed by the act. If the charity be not a corporation, the 6th section of the statute, and in some cases the 7th and 8th, must be consulted. (See supra, p. 274, n.(6)).

(6) This and the two following recitals might be more compendiously embraced in one, as supra, p. 274, retaining however the full description of the lands. But as the bishop may expect to see a PETITION FOR

of Parliament made and passed in the year of the

reign of her present Majesty, to alter some of the provisions of the said first-mentioned act, and to provide in a different manner for some of the objects of the said firstmentioned act, the said charity is now conducted and established according to a scheme settled and approved of by the said High Court of Chancery, and confirmed by the said first-mentioned act of Parliament, and the objects of the said charity have been extended to embrace, [brief mention of new objects as stated in the acts], according to the regulations and provisions in the said acts of Parliament contained.
