Met at St. Thomas’s, settled each man’s share £12 12 0, 3 things on hand.
Sharing out the money; it comes to a rough £427 to each man. In 1812, £12 was a considerable sum, it is about a quarter of the annual wage of someone in the building trade, and this is not for a quarter of a years work.
Things were a resurrectionists slang for bodies; 3 things on hand. 3 bodies not yet sold and available.
