. I would like to make a remark or two, I was reelected assessor & collector of taxes for the year 1844 but on account of sickness I have not commenced yet and seeing that the wishes me to go away perhaps it would be as well for another to be appointed. It was the unanimous voice of the council that he continue his office <as a assessor & collector> until he is going away and resigns his office.
then arose and read a petition from bro concerning Charles Warner the City Auctioneer
Moved & Secd. that Charles Warner be discontinued from his office
Moved & Secd. that be elected as City Auctioneer. [p. ]
