PENALTIES.

The Commissioners of Stamps and Taxes hereby give Notice, that every person
taking, killing, or pursuing Game without first obtaining a Certificate,
incurs a penalty of £20, and is also liable to be surcharged in double the
amount of the Certificate Duty.

Any person in pursuit of Game refusing on being duly required to produce his
Certificate, or to permit the same to be read, or a copy thereof to be
taken, or refusing to declare his true name and place of residence, also
incurs a penalty of £20.

Gamekeepers are desired to take notice that a Certificate at the rate of £1
7s.  6d.  will not authorize any person to kill Game beyond the limits of
the Manor for which he is deputed:  and in order that a Certificate at such
a rate of duty may protect a Gamekeeper, it is requisite, not only that he
should be deputed by some Lord or Lady of a Manor or reputed Manor, but also
that such Deputation should be registered with the Clerk of the Peace, or
the Gamekeeper will be liable to be surcharged in double the Duty of £4  0s.
10d.  and also to be prosecuted by any common informer for the penalty of
£20.

N. B. - It is the intention of the Commissioners of Stamps and Taxes to
publish in a separate List the names and residences of all persons
surcharged in double Duty for sporting without Certificates.
