Lloyd's Registry of Shipping,

CASTLE-COURT, BIRCHIN-LANE,

JANUARY, 1829. The Committee beg leave to remind the SUBSCRIBERS, that when this Society was established, in the year 1760, the Annual Subscription was Twelve Guineas.

At the end of Half a century their funded Property having increased to £12,000 Stock, the Price of tho Book was reduced one-third, viz. from Twelve to Eight Guineas ; but the Expenses for the last Twenty Years having exceeded the Income by nearly £500 per Annum, and the Stock now remaining amounting to only £2000, the Committee are under the necessity of raising the Price of the Book this Year to Ten Guideas.

Nearly Ten Thousand Vessels are surveyed every Year; the Expense of Survey, by competent Judges, cannot be reduced under the present Salaries, which exceed £1000 per Andum, rather ander %. 1 d. each Vessel.
