April 27th, 1841.

At the annual meeting of the Stockholders of the Kingston Marine Railway, held at their office this day, the following gentlemen were elected Directors for the ensuing year, viz.:

Henry Gildersleeve, John S. Cartwright, Douglas Prentiss, John Counter, and C.W. Jenkins.

A statement of the past year's business having been submitted to the Stockholders, it was found very satisfactory, and showed a steady and profitable increase of business from the comencement; and it appearing evident that the amount of capital hitherto deemed sufficient was no longer adequate to carry out the views of the company on so extended a scale as the present flourishing condition of the works would warrant, it was unanimously resolved, that in order to give greater facility to their operations, and to enable them to place the establishment in a state to meet every exigency, the capital stock of the Company be extended to the full amount limited by the charter, and that stock books be opened in the office after the sixth day of May next; for the purpose of subscribing the names of those wishing to become purchasers, where every information can be obtained.

At a meeting of the Directors held immediately after the above, H. Gildersleeve, Esq. was re-elected President, and Mr. C.W. Jenkins elected Secretary & Treasurer.


Sec'y and Treasurer, K.M.R.W.
