Mr. ILSLEY:

May I move to amend this motion slightly. I find that the place is Spencer's Point and not Great Village. I move that in the fifth and sixth lines the words "and on repairs to an existing wharf, both at Great Village" be struck out and the words "at Spencer's Point" be substituted therefor.
