THE SIXTEENTH REPORT (abridged) of the DIRECTORS OF THE METROPOLITAN ASSOCIATION for IMPROVING THE DWELLINGS OF THE INDUSTRIOUS CLASSES presented to the Shareholders at the Annual Meeting held on the 22nd day of June, 1860.

FAMILY DWELLINGS

Albert-street.-In the statement No. 4 it appears that the sum of 801l. 0s. 4d. has been received from the dwellings for families in Albert-street, Mile-end New Town, during the year ending the 31st March, 1860, and deducting therefrom 374l. 10s. 3d. for expenses, there remains a profit of 426l. 10s. 1d. There have been seven deaths out of an average population of 285; two of the deaths were of children under ten years of age. 

Albert Cottages.--The sum of 466l. 1s. has been received from the tenants of the Albert Cottages, Pelham-street, Mile-end New Town, and the expenses have been 165l. 10s. 5d., leaving a profit of 300l. 10s. 7d. There have been two deaths, both of which were of children under ten years of age, out of an average population of 110. 

Albion-buildings.--The sum of 259l. 16s. has been received from the tenants in Albion-buildings, Bartholomew-close, and the expenses have been 10l. 18s. 8d., leaving a profit of 157l. 17s. 4d. There have been three deaths in these buildings, all of which were of children under ten years of age, out of an average population of 93. 

Ingestre-buildings.--The sum of 1,145 l. 6s. 7d. has been received from the tenants in Ingestre-buildings,  [-275-]  New-street, Golden-square, and, deducting therefrom the sum of 762 l. 13s. 10d. for expenses, there remains a profit of 382 l. 12s. 9d. Out of an average population of 342 at these buildings, there have been six deaths, four of which were of children under ten years of age. 

Nelson-square.-The sum of 1,357 l. 6s. 3d. has been received from the tenants in Nelson-square, Snows-fields, Bermondsey, and deducting therefrom 578l. 8s. 8d. for expenses, there remains a profit of 778 l. 17s. 7d. There have been fifteen deaths in these dwellings, out of an average population of 505; eleven of which deaths were of children under ten years of age. 

Pancras-square.-The sum of 1,388 l. 4s. 4d. has been received from the tenants in Pancras-square, Old Pancras-road, and the expenses have been 747 l. 8s. 4d.; leaving a profit of 640 l. 16s. There have been eleven deaths in these buildings, out of an average population of 487; five were of children under ten years of age. It will be seen that there is an increase of upwards of 200 l. in the receipts from these buildings during last year. 

Pleasant-row.-The sum of 183 l. 1s. 6d. has been received from the tenants in Pleasant-row, Mile-end New Town, and the expenses have been 86 l. 3s. 2d. leaving a profit of 96 l. 18s. 4d. There has been no death in these buildings, out of an average population of 55. 

Queen's-place.-The sum of 93 l. 9s. has been received in respect of the property in Queen's-place, Dockhead; and the expenses have been 101 l. 7s. 2d.; leaving a deficiency of 7 1. 18s. 2d. There has been no death in these buildings, out of an average population of 51. 

[-276-]

DWELLINGS FOR SINGLE MEN

Metropolitan Chambers.-The sum of 1,152 l. 3s. has been received at the Metropolitan Chambers, Albert-street, Mile-end New Town, and the expenses have been 990 l. 8s. 6d.; leaving a surplus of 161 l. 14s. 6d. There has been one death at these chambers, out of an average population of 171. 

Soho Chambers.-The sum of 70l l. 10s. 6d. has been received at the Soho Chambers, 36, Old Compton-street, and the expenses have been 841 l. 10s. 1d.; leaving a deficiency of 139 l. 19s. 7d. There has been no death at these chambers, out of an average population of 77. As suggested at the last annual meeting, the sinking-fund for these chambers has been increased, with a view to terminating the lease at the first opportunity, viz. in March, 1870. 

Mortality.-The mortality in the entire property of the Association has this year been 45, out of an average population of 2,186, being at the rate of 21 per 1,000; 27 of the deaths were of children under ten years of age. 
    The balance of the profits of the year ending 31st March, 1859, after providing for the dividend then declared, and carrying, as then suggested, 82l. additional to the sinking-fund account of the Soho Chambers, for the year ending 31st March, 1859, and also deducting 61. for a sinking-fund for Queen's-place, has been carried to the guarantee-fund account, increasing that fund to 1,15l l. 15s. 7d. 

[-277-] Dividend.-The profits for this year, notwithstanding the heavy repairs, amounting to 396l. 5s. 10d. more than those of last year, and, after deducting the sum of 100l. carried to the sinking-fund account of the Soho Chambers for the year ending 31st March, 1860, amount to the sum of 2,146l. 1s. 1d. The directors, therefore, recommend that a dividend of 21. per cent., clear of income-tax, should be declared; which, when deducted from the net profit, 2,146l. 1s. 1d., will leave a balance of about 330l. to be carried to the guarantee fund.
