                     We have the honour herewith to
enclose our account for the year 1841 as Commissioners
of Indians for the County of Northumberland and
trust that the manner in which we have expended
the money placed at our disposal may meet with
His Excellencys approbation.  From the liberal sum
apportioned to this county we were enabled under
the personal superinsendance of the Revd. M Egan
to relieve many aged and infirm persons and several
casual cases of distress that came under our
notice besides furnishing a small quantity of seed
potatoes to those deserving.
     We earnestly request that His Excellency will make
as liberal an allowance to this county this year
as possible; and that you will cause an early
issue of the warrant that we may know what
quantity of seed to furnish to each family.
                                          We have the honour to be
Hon Wm  F Odell                  Your most obdt servts.
Provincial Secretary                Michl Egan
