March 26th 1862
I have the honor to request that I may be informed whether or not my check 58824 in favor of J Waugh for £8-13-0 was charged to the balance of the vote of £30 for books in 1861.
Also to request that in future years the balance of the vote for the purchase of books may be reserved to pay for such books as may be ordered from England but not paid for within the current year.
I have the honor to be
Your obedient servant
The Auditor General
