There is in the office of the Secretary of State the written and unbound Journals of several years proceedings of the Senate and of the House of Representatives. . Those documents, if left in the state in which they now are, are liable to be lost, or irrepairably injured.

The army rolls of the revolution belonging to this State, are not only in a loose and dilapidated condition, but are so badly arranged that in many cases it is the work of days instead of hours, for any one to ascertain where and when a given soldier performed the services for which he claims a pension. The necessary cost of repairing, arranging, binding and making a suitable index, would be less than the extra expense which would otherwise have to be paid for their examination by applicants for pensions.

It is understood that there are at Portsmouth, or elsewhere, several trophies of the battle of Bennington, presented to this State by the hero of that battle, Gen. John Stark. The loss of those trophies would be regretted by every lover of his country's glory. I therefore respectfully suggest to the legislature the propriety of having them collected and deposited in some safe place under the care of some responsible agent.

JOHN H. STEELE. Council Chamber, June 18, 1945."
