"While the spine states that the minutes go to 1802, there are no actual meetings of the Council past 1797 reported in Book C : SEE Book D. Items dated 1802 are actually after-the-fact memos concerning previous claims which were added to this Book.; Contents : Name index and general index [34 lvs.] -- Supplement to various 1797 Minutes of the Executive Council [3 lvs.] -- Minutes of the Council meetings concerning land grants [172 lvs. - with 2 pages of minutes on each leaf].; Pages 291 to 313 contain the minutes to the meetings held at York on June 29th and 30th, and July 4th and 5th 1796.; Page following 292 is numbered 1 and contains an Appendix to previous meetings held 14th and 22nd June and November 8th 1797.; Page 46 misnumbered 56 ; page 57 misnumbered page 67; page 67 misnumbered page 49, but renumbered page 66 1/2 .; Pages 314 to 321 contain a copy of a report No'd A-62 from Paul Averill recommending people to be settled in the Township of Townsend, which was dealt with on page 4 [April 11th 1797 meeting].; Page 321 also contains two memos dated June 1802, referring back to pages 162 and 270 in Book A concerning claims made earlier and effectively rejecting those claims.; Pages 322 to 337 contain adjustments to meetings which were missed or should have been reported in Book A.
