C.—The expenditure in connection with the Regalia was below the estimate.
D.—The office of His Majesty's Limner remained vacant.
E.—The expenses connected with the Bible Board were less than estimated.

J.—The net receipts of the Railway exceeded the estimated amount, and the sum required to meet the deficiency for payment of dividend on the authorised capital was therefore less.
