It also includes minutes of semi-annual meetings, 1831-1857, of the commissioners, with resolutions directing that funds be distributed or denied to various petitioners and authorizing that the Williamsburg District tax collector appropriate a specified percentage that varied from year to year out of the general tax for the support of the poor.
