the Parishioners, or at least all the Householders, of the two Parishes.
it was thought just to extend the benefit of the Compensation to all who pay
to the Scavengers-rate: that is, to as many as it could be extended to, many
paying to that rate who do not pay to the Poors rate: There seemed
no other way in which a benefit to so small an amount could be
extended to, and shared in an equable manner among, so large
a number of Individuals. It is hoped that upon this plan all
who shared or could have shared in the benefit taken away,
will be sharer's in the compensation.-
