emigrants; and whenever applied to for that purpose,
they see that all agreements between ship-owners,
agents, or masters, and intending emigrants are duly
performed. They also see that the provisions of the
Passengers' Acts are strictly complied with ; viz., that
passenger-vessels are sea-worthy, that they have on
board a sufficient supply of provisions, water, medicines,
&c., and that they sail with proper punctuality.

They attend personally at their offices on every week
day, and afford gratuitously all the assistance in their
power to protect intending emigrants against fraud and
imposition, and to obtain redress where oppression or
injury has been practised on them.
