N. B. In the foragoing account there has been paid $'2,980 69 of debts due 
sn former years, and ^1900 06 paid John Gregory, balance of account; the sup- 
poit of the Poor this year has cost ^10,307 90 — that is, §5,807 90 paid, and 
about !g4,500 outstanding debts. There is due from the Stute Treasurer for sup- 
port of its Paupers the past year ^3096 38. Several small accounts against 
Towns, and the sum of i$515,87 in the hands of the ChBirman. The claims 
against the Overseer's department, (including money borrowed of the Phoenix 
bank,) amount to about ^5,500. 

The increased number of persons requiring assistance on account of the pres- 
sure of the times, and several necessary repairs, &c. at the Almshouse establish- 
ment, have increased the expences of the Overseer's department, so that there is 
a deficiency of about !^1,S00. Respectfully submitted, 

Charlestown, Mareh 16th, 1840. SAMUEL POOR, Chairman.
