ing Resolution :

petition and the documents which accompany the same."

Street and adjoins the property of Mr. Warner on the North : That
the Commissioners of Estimate & Assessment for opening Fourth
Street have assessed the value, together with the improvement of said
gore, at 2479 dollars, to be paid by the Corporation.

" The Committee in deciding on this Subject have not attempted
to investigate the correctness of the Assessment but have acted on the
general principle that in all cases where the Commissioners have fixed
the value of land to be paid by the Corporation no private sale of
such land ought to be made, unless the value thus fixed is paid by



23 Nov. 1818 COMMON COUNCIL MINUTES 117

lution :

Seventy nine dollars, and not otherwise."

ration the sum of $287.98 cents which remained in his hands after

year 1815 paid over by order of the Corporation to Mr. La Forgue
of this City as Attorney for the Widow Magnan [363] one of the
children of the deceased Mrs. Jouettee: that by the documents accom-
panying the petition authenticated by the American Consul at Paris

other child Louis Matthias Jouette who, together with Monsieur
Manni the present husband of Mrs. Magnan, has executed a power

which was read and referred to the Committee on the Fire Department.

The Counsel of the Board reported :

" That the Commissioners appointed by the Supreme Court to esti-
mate the value of the premises between Fulton Street and Crane
Wharf, which are required for a Site for a Market, have completed
the Estimate of the value of that property and have delivered it to
the Counsel for the purpose of preparing a Report to the Supreme
Court but that they have not made [365] any Assessments upon any
property for benefits which may be conferred upon it in consequence

cumstances the Counsel feels himself at a loss to decide whether he
ought to prepare the report or not and requests instructions from the
