advance, a lump sum equivalent, to be fixed by the Committee.
Auxiliary Societies pay only Twenty Pounds annually, for each
Pupil chosen and sent by them. When the friends can only pay
part of the annual expense, or only a small lump sum at once, the
Committee may admit the child, if the circumstances of the Insti-
tution allow it; but in all cases, the friends must at least pay for
clothing the child.
