Amoiint of Appropriation 
Expended over do. 



S2,358 79 

Note. — The reason why the expenses of the Poor in the 
House have been so great the past year, has been owing 
entirely to the great increase of foreign paupers, and the 
sickness they have brought with them. Independent of 
those cases, the Selectmen believe that the expenses of the 
House would have come within the appropriation.
