 51 Vic Petition of John Drout. 483
PETITION.
To  the  Honourable   Mr.  Speaker  and   Members   of the  Legislative  Assembly of
British Columbia in session assembled.
The humble petition of John Drout (baker) of Victoria, British Columbia, sheweth:—
1st. In the year 1879 your petitioner contracted to supply bread to the Provincial Jail
at Victoria for twelve months at a price therein specified, and that at that time there was no
duty on flour :
2nd. That during the term of his said contract the Dominion Government imposed a duty
on flour:
3rd. That owing to the imposition of such duty, and consequent rise in the price of flour,
your petitioner became and was a great loser, and but for the same would have made a
considerable profit, and he lost thereby the sum of $500 and upwards :
4th. Your petitioner therefore humbly prays that your Honourable House will take the
foregoing facts into consideration.
And your petitioner, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
John Droct.
VICTORIA: Printed by Richard Wolfexden, Government Printer,
at the Government Printing Office, James' Bay.
