“Unbecoming Words and differences” between the Elder Brethren

Trinity House Court Minute:

“The Court proceeded to consider of some effectual means to prevent unbecoming Words and differences at future Meetings; and Unanimously Resolved that if any Elder Brother of this Corporation shall hereafter give or return any such language to any other Elder Brother, at any Court or By Board, as the said Court or By Board shall judge to be quarrelsome or abusive, provoking or reproachfull, he shall forfeit ten pounds for every such offence; To be deducted out of his next Ensuing Turns for the use of the poor of the Corporation.”
