31

That they have examined the petition and other papers (including the certificate of the Comptroller), accompanying the same, and find the following facts:

On the 15th day of December, 1866, the petitioner purchased of the State lot No. 70, in the old survey of township No. 5 of the Old Military Tract in the county of Clinton, and paid therefor the sum of $343, as appears by the receipt of the treasurer annexed to the petition. The petitioner never took possession of the lot.

On the 1st day of May, 1867, the sale was cancelled by virtue of an order of the Supreme Court, made long prior to the sale, directing the assessors to assess this township by the old survey only.

The petitioner's title having been taken away by the act of the State, your committee can see no reason why his money, with interest thereon, should not be refunded.

We therefore recommend the passage of the Assembly bill, without amendment.

All which is respectfully submitted.
Dated March 10, 1868.
