Documentary of the House of Representatives at the Twenty-Second Session of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana: Begun and Held at the Town of Indianapolis December 4, 1837 (Classic Reprint) by Indiana General Assembly (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Documentary of the House of Representatives at the Twenty-Second Session of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana: Begun and Held at the Town of Indianapolis December 4, 1837 With the return of the period of our annual meeting to confer on matters of public interest, we find ourselves under renewed and increased obligations to our Creator for the unusual measure of health we have enjoyed throughout the seasons of the year w at its close. Whilst we render our grateful ackwledgments from this exemption from his chastening hand, our indebtedness is increased by the special dispensations of his favor in the profusion of our harvests. Though it is with some abatement, the usual indications of the prosperity of our citizens may be observed in the compensation received for the products of the soil; in the reward given for labor, and in the returns realized from all our enter-prize and active pursuits; and when we compare our condition with that of the less favored portions of the Union, we have reason to be content with our individual lots, and to congratulate ourselves upon the evident prosperity of the State. Although the returns of the assessments to the Auditor's Office are incomplete, the amount of the taxable property for this year may be estimated at ninety-eight millions of dollars, being about twenty millions more than the aggregate assessments of the previous year. The revenue derivable from that sum at the rate established by law, will replenish the treasury, extinguish the remnant of unsatisfied claims upon it of the last, and meet the demands upon it the current year.
