By the foregoing account it will be observed, that there was apparently a bal- 
ance unexpended on the 28th of March 1833, of $903 24 — but there were out- 
standing claims on the Overseers at that time to the full amount of this balance. 

There is now due from the Overseers, for Dry Goods, Provisions, Leather, 
Meal, Repairs, Salaries, ^c. about 2500 dollars, and to the Phoenix Bank 500 
dollars, — to discharge these claims and provide for the further expenses of the 
Alms House to the close of the year for which the present Board of Overseers 
were elected, they have besides the above cash balance, an account againit the 
Commonwealth of $3735 26, — and several small accounts, to be collected. 
Respectfully submitted, JAMES K. FROTH LMGHAM, 

Chairman of Overseerslgjf the Poor. 

Charlestown, March 1st, 1S34. 

CHARLESTOWN, March 7th, 1834. The Committee appointed by the 
Town to audit tlie Overseers of the Poors' Accounts, have carefully examined tiie 
same and find them properly entered, correctly cast, and the payments properly 
vouched, and there is a balance in favour of the Town of one hundred thirty two 
dollars and 85-lOOths.
