ROBERTSON, Esq.WILLIAM WHYTOCK, Esq.Object of theCorporation.The object of the Corporation is to relieve natives of Scotland in need, being of honest and creditable record, living within the boundaries of the Greater London District; more particularly the aged, the widowed, the fatherless, and such as are in occasional and temporary distress. For its income the Charity depends mainly on Voluntary Contributions.Pensions tothe Aged.Yearly pensions, ranging from £7 10s. to £30, are granted to natives of Scotland over 65 years of age who have, for the last twelve years, been resident in London, and whose income from other sources does not amount to more than £15 per annum. The foresaid limit of age constituting one of the conditions for award of pension is, however, relaxed in the case of applicants afflicted with chronic infirmity, physical or mental. In view of the Old Age Pensions Act, 1908, all pensions and regular allowances will be subject to readjustment, possibly withdrawal, possibly curtailment, when the recipients reach 70 years of age. The filling of vacancies is made by the election of Subscribers.
