KEPORT. To the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors for the Counly of Washtenaw. The undersigned, a commiitee appointed by ihe Board of Supervisors, at their session in October, 1845, to mnke a contract, for making an Index to the Deeds. Mort gages, &c, on Record in the office of the Register oï Deeds for said counry, respect fully report :- That having been limiied by the resoluiion of the Board to the rum of $30 J, they' were unable to engage n pison to perform the work required for thai amount - that ihey applitd to Geo. W. Gilbert, the Regis ter of Deeds for said couniy, and finally made a contract with him upon the following lerms : - Tha: he should complete the Index required as soon as the same could reasonably be done - ihat after the complction thercof, if the same was, in all respects performed in a sarisfactory nKinner, they would recommend to t!ie Board of Supervisors the pay ment to him ofsuch a sum, as in their judgment ihey should think he vna fairly èntillcd to, whether it should be Iers or more than 300. But it was distinctly understood by Mr. Gilbert. ihat the committee had no auihority to alluw him more than $COJ : and he undertook the work with the expresa agreement that the committee would do nothing more than recommend to the Board of Supervisors the paymeni of any larger sum than y3D0 in case they sbould think he ought lo have ntorc; and ihat if ihey were of opinión that the work was worth less :han 300, they $hou!d so report to the Board. Under ii is arrangement. Mr. Gilbert, or Mr. John N. Gott, who is his Jeputy, has been engigel in making the Index, but ii will probably take them eix months longer to complete the same. Tlic work, so far, has, in ihe opinión of the committee, been well perform ed - many errors which were found in ihe present index have been corrected, and they are satisfird that when the samo shall be finished, it will be. in uil respects, a good one. The committee would that the Board of Supervisors provide for the raising of the sum of three hunJred dollars, in order that when tho w.irk shall be linished aécording to the igreement - ihat amoum, if the commiitcesho'd ihmk Mr. Gilbert entiiled to so much, should be pnid him. Should the committee considar thatMr. Gilbert ought to havc moro ihan '3lO, they may report their opinión to the board, for i;s aclion at ihe next animal neeíinL Perhnps, if the Board slioulJ ihink proper to innke an nppropriation as rccommcnded. itinighi be proper to nuiliorize the Clerk to draw an order in Mr. Gilbcrt's favor foi any eum not exceeding 3üO upon thc certifícate oí the Commiilcc, (or of any other person wliom the Jionni may oppoint,) that the work hos been compleieJ nccording to the contract and to ihe saiisfiiction ot" the committee.
