Colonial Secretary’s Office, Adelaide, January 3, 1854

The Land and Emigration Commissioners have forwarded to this office written engagements subscribed by

the Immigrants arrived by the Epaminondas, whereby they severally promise and undertake, that if they, or

any of their families with their permission, quit or purpose to quit the Colony, within four years from the day

of their landing, they will repay to the Government a proportionate part of the cost of their passage to

South Australia, that is to say-at the rate of £4 a piece for themselves and wives, and half that sum for each

of their respective children, for each year or any fraction thereof which shall be wanting to complete four

years residence in the Colony.
