EXPLANATORY NOTE.

In the amount of the Sustentation Fund each year is included not merely the Contributions from Ministerial Charges, but also the Contributions from the A880ciations of Stations, which are transmitted to the Sustentation Fund, and are returned to them.

The difference between the number of ministers participating in the Sustentation Fund and the number drawing the full amount of the Dividend is accounted for by ministers in Equal Dividend Charges ordained during the year, also by ministers of Church Extension Charges, or colleagues and successors, and of those under special arrangement as to the amount of stipend payable to them from the Sustentation Fund.

The amount of the Sustentation Fund participated in by the ministers of the Free Church is wholly irrespective of the Supplements paid by congregations to their own ministers. The total amount of which for the year 1865-66 was £42,373, 138. 8d.
