p.1 City Council - The Fish Market - Mr. Peter Kiel sent a communication stating that he had been desired by Mr. Whicher, Commissioner of Fisheries, to see as far as possible that the fish market is well supplied with fresh fish, taken on the fishing grounds within a certain distance from the city. While earnestly carrying out his instructions in arranging for the fishermen to sell their fish in Kingston rather than to the Americans, he finds that the hucksters here pick them up, and then the citizens have to pay a double price for them. He has also seen fish exposed for sale not fit for food. He also hopes that something will be done to make the fish market more attractive than it is at present, and establish some regulations for the guidance of the market.

The letter was laid over.
