Captain Kennedy to the Commissioners - August 25, 1848
IN reply to your communication of the 24th instant, I have the honour to inform you, that the band of paupers therin adverted to were hired by the sub-agent, and taken away from the stone breaking depôt, for the purposes I have stated. They, of course, received no relief for the day they were absent, nor for some days after, as the relieving officer ascertained that they received a high rate of wages for this service. I did not intend to convey that the implements used by these paupers were Union or public property.
