- ‘However, it is a matter of regret that 25 members have still not paid their quarterage which was due in October, a shortfall of over £4,300 in income.’
- ‘Before every quarterly conference the class leader visited each member, collected his quarterage, and issued to members of good standing tickets which allowed them to partake of communion.’
