RENT PAID FOR THE CHURCH, AND SALARIES PAID TO THE

MINISTERS.

The tenancy of the church dated from Midsummer, 1685, but to ascertain the amount of the rent for the first five years is not at all an easy matter. Whatever the amount may have been, for some considerable time fifteen shillings a year was allowed from it to the minister, by the landlord M. Aymes, 'à cause de ses filles vent a l'assemblée,' and this sum generally

appears in the accounts as being paid direct to M. Delebecque. During the first five years the actual amount paid on account of rent was:—

We are told in one of the entries (May 9, 1688) that the first year was 'compensée' and, assuming the rent to be £3 per annum, I take this to mean that M. Aymes excused the payment of £2 5s. Od., and that fifteen shillings only were paid in that year, and this to M. Delebecque.

In 1691, the rent certainly was £3, of which fifteen shillings were paid to M. Delebecque; in 1692 the whole amount is paid to M. Aymes, who returns fifteen shillings, credited in the minister's salary account, to be referred to below; but in the following year the former arrangement was reverted to, and two payments are entered, the fifteen shillings in this case being paid to M. Campredon who by this time had succeeded M. Delebecque.

Up to this date the payments on account of rent had all been debited to the general account, but for the next three years, up to 1696, they are charged to what I have called the reserve fund. For the first three quarters of this period the payment entered is only £1 17s. 6d. which is at the rate of £2 10s. per annum; for the next three quarters £2 5s. is paid, which is again at the rate of £3 per annum ; but thenceforward the rent remains at £2 10s. per annum.

As regards the salaries paid to the ministers these seem to have been at first provided for by a separate collection. During M. Delebecque's tenure of office (1685-1691), the total so collected amounted to £106 4s. Od. which was paid to him in various sums, and at different dates, the account is then balanced and certified by M. Delebecque as follows, "Cejourd'huy arresté et reiglé le susdt comte avec Monsieur de la Croix (an.) pour ce qu'il a receu et payé a moy des deniers de la contribu tion dont je le décharge et tient quitte ledt jour 17e Sepre 1691. S. Delebecque." In addition to this, M. Delebecque received from the rent a total of £4 5s., and on August 21st, 1692, a further payment is entered as being made to him of £2, making a total of £112 14s. paid to him during the five and a half years of his ministry, an average of £20 10s. per

annum.
