We, the undersigned members of the Ninth Legislative Assembly, appointed by the Hon. Secretary of Wyoming Territory to examine the books and accounts of the Auditor and Treasurer of Wyoming Territory, have made such examination and do most respectfully present our report to this Honorable Body.

We find after a very careful examination of all the books and accounts of the Auditor and Treasurer, that their receipts and disbursements have been correctly recorded, and a voucher for each and every amount drawn upon the Treasurer has been very carefully examined by your committee, and not a single error found.

We also report the balance in the hands of the Treasurer on January 1, 1886, to have been, according to his books, $31,578.27. Upon examination of Treasurer's account in the Stock Growers' National Bank of Cheyenne we find the amount of balance to have been exactly as reported.

We also take pleasure in reporting that each and every account of the Auditor and Treasurer have not only been correctly kept, but in their neat and detailed manner show a disposition on the part of the Auditor and Treasurer to comply with each and every requirement of the law.
