The board has appropriated, per vote of the Town, the old dwel- 
ling house, on the Almshouse lot, for the accommodation of the 
children of the establishment. 

The necessary repairs at the Almshouse (including slating roof, 
copper gutters, &.c.) have amounted to about $1,400 more than 
ordinary. 

The whole amount of Expenditures (including repairs) have been 
about 12,2S2 45, that is : $9,282 45 paid, and about $3,000 out- 
standing claims. 

There are collectable accounts against towns and individuals 
amounting to about $600, and $1,432 15 in the hands of the 
Chairman, so that there will be a deficiency of about $1,000, 
Respectfully Submitted, 

SAMUEL POOR, Chairman, 
Charlestown, March 17th, 1841.
