8. THE FORMATION OF CEMENT WORKS

OR

THE SUB-LEASING OF FACILITIES FOR MAKING THE SAME EITHER TO A COMPANY OR OTHER PERSON

At a fixed rent, with royalty in addition. The well-known Shell Beach extending along many hundreds of yards of the Shore offers (in connection with a Clay obtainable in adjoining Bays), the necessary material in almost unlimited quantities for the formation of first-class Cement, similar to the well known Chunam (Madras) Cement, which is so extensively used. In this case likewise the Harbour would afford cheap and ready facilities for the exportation of the finished article. Specimens of the shell and of the clay can be seen at the offices of the Auctioneers.

9. The Letting of the Houses respectively at Belvoir Bay and Rosiere Bay.

10. THE RE-LETTING OF THE HOTEL

which used to realize £80 a year. The present Proprietors have not desired to Let it.

OTHER SOURCES OE INCOME COULD NO DOUBT BE PARTICULARIZED

The Live and dead stock, the Growing and other Crops, the Agricultural Implements, the machinery, Iron Hurdles, the capital Sea-going Boat, a small Life-Boat, 2 other Boats, and various items of Furniture in acordance with an inventory to be produced at the time of Sale, and to be seen previously at the offices of the Auctioneer, are to be purchased by Valuation (see the 4th Condition of Sale), or at a sum to be named by the Auctioneer, if requested, at the time of sale.

(Except the crop of grapes and chapel furniture and fittings) of the Vendors' are included in the sale to Mr James Stevens Linklater (that is to say) all or such of the articles now existing comprised in Mr Simmonds inventories and valuation amounting to £1812:2:6 but the grapes the chapel fittings and furniture excepted.

The Vendors can probably arrange for one half are to arrange for four thousand pounds of the purchase money to be advanced on mortgage of the Island at 4 per cent interest payable half yearly.1

With the view to the prevention of any trespass from strangers and of poaching on the Ishnd the proprietors some time ago thought well to publish the following in the-Gazette, viz:-

ISLAND OF HERM.

[TRANSLATION]

The 1st April, 1882, before Alfred Smith Collings, Esq., Lieut. Bailiff, present &c.

PERMISSION has been given to Messrs. Louis Numa Brard and Augustine Claude Broquin, tenants at fee farm from Her Majesty of the Island of Herm, to give notice on three consecutive Sundays in the "Cadre" of the Church of the town and parish of St. Peter-Port, and to publish on three Saturdays in the Official Gazette of this island, that no persons are allowed to pass over the Gardens, Fields, Enclosures, Furzebrakes, and other lands in the said Island of Herm, under a fine of £3 trs. applicable to their benefit, saving to others their rights.

(Signed),           E. M. COHU,
Deputy Greffier to the Queen.

The Plan attached to these Particulars has been reduced from a larger Plan, and it shall be considered correct.

 
  1. The original is somewhat ambiguous but it was probably intended that everything between “other sources of income could no doubt be particularized” and “with the view to the prevention of any trespass from strangers” etc., including the hand written entries, should be deleted.
