Thanks; I installed the attached patch.  Since it wasn't immediately
obvious from your source that the "1st January, 1907" referred to the final
date of effect, I sought out the original text of the Ordinance No. 9 of
1906 referenced therein, and found a footnote in "The Laws of Seychelles
Revised: Seychelles local laws, 1899-1906" (published in 1907 by W.L. Rind)
which confirms it as the date the ordinance was brought into force.
