Seeing that the Respondents, the lawful custodians of said respective Registers, have been duly notified and do not oppose the granting of said Petition.

Seeing article 75 of the Civil Code.

Considering that Petitioner has proven the material allegations of his said Petition.

DO GRANT the same; do, in consequence, order the rectification of the Act of baptism of said Petitioner in said Registers - Permanent and duplicate Annual - for said Congregational Church at Cowansville aforesaid for said year 1873; do order that the names "Frederick Abel" wherever it occurs in said Registers be struck out of said entries and the name "FREDERICK ADAMS" be substituted in place thereof so that Petitioner's true name shall appear therein as "FREDERICK ADAMS BRIGGS", and do further order that a copy of the present judgment of rectification be inscribed respectively in said Registers at the entries of the Acts so rectified, and, if there be no margin, that a copy of the present judgment shall remain annexed at each place of entry of said Act of baptism. The whole at the cost and diligence of said Petitioner.
