An application for the transfer of the license of the Hope and Anchor, Little Darkgate-street, to Mr Frank Fear from his son, was adjourned for a week. Some difficulty seems to have arisen in the matter owing to the fact that Mr Fear held a game license, and it is not legal for these two licenses to be vested in one person. AO 7 Feb 1885
