Reeling well satisfied with tho action
aken relative to tho Public Archives
Jommission. I made a full report of
our doings during tho past year in
cluding our action with regard to tho
Stokes bill, and told them as well as
I could, what we hoped to do in the
near future. Tho council expressed
their approval by appropriating two
hundred and fifty dollars for tho ex
penses of tho commission for 1901."
This shows that tho work has proved

valuable source of our state history.
