Oxford Journal 9 September 1871 page 8

Corporation – at a meeting of the Corporation held on Tuesday last, Alderman Jas H Brooks was elected Mayor for the ensuing year, which commences on the 26th inst. At the same meeting was presented by the Mayor on behalf of the Corporation, to Mr Paulin, who has recently held the office of Treasurer, a copy of a resolution passed at a previous meeting, beautifully illuminated in gold and colours, framed and glazed, in recognition of his long services.  It was as follows: “At a meeting of the Corporation of Henley-on-Thames, held in the Council Chamber on the 15th of August 1871, it was resolved unanimously that this meeting desires to express its sense of valuable services Mr Paulin has rendered to this Corporation and to the town at large, by the very careful and assiduous way in which he has discharged the office of Treasurer of this Corporation and of the greater portion of the Charities under their control, for a period of eleven years. The gratuitous performance of those duties has involved great labour, and at times must have occasioned great anxiety.  In expressing their regret that, owing to failing health, Mr Paulin feels himself compelled to relinquish his onerous office, the Corporation venture to hope that he may be long spared to give his valuable assistance to their deliberations.  Wm T Hews, Mayor.”
