  1. 1

    When Sloan entered this text as a resolution in the city council minute book, he placed this insertion further down, before “the persons having their property sold.” The reference to “ordinances of this city” notwithstanding, the city council does not appear to have passed any ordinance related to sheriff’s, constable’s, or marshal’s sales prior to 5 March 1842, and the first two of these were county offices, rather than municipal.
