REPORT OF AUDITORS

The following is taken from a letter by Harold G. Fowler,
Director, Division of Municipal Accounting, Tax Commission,
to the Selectmen following audit of the Town's books on March
land 2, 1940:

"Taxes:

The tax warrant of collector Wilson for the levy of 1939 was
audited and balanced.

The balances of the levies of 1937 and 1938 which were
uncollected as of January 31, 1939, and the Tax Sale Account
were audited and balanced.

Selectmen's and Town Treasurer's Accounts:

Vouchers issued by the Selectmen during the fiscal year
ended January 31, 1940, were examined as were also the sup-
porting invoices and road agent's pay rolls. The cancelled
checks of the town treasurer, issued upon orders of the select-
men, were compared with the vouchers and found to be in
agreement. The receipts of the treasurer were checked by
source insofar as it was possible to do so. Totals of receipts
and expenditures were verified. The treasurer's cash book
balance as of January 31, 1940, amounted to $177.46 which
agreed with the reconciled bank balance as of this date.



20

Town Clerk:

The town clerk's motor vehicle and dog license accounts for
the fiscal year were audited and found to be correct as shown.

All funds received by the town clerks on account of motor
vehicle permits and dog licenses issued during this period were
remitted to the treasurer with the exception of the fees for dog
licenses which the clerk retains in accordance with the provisions
of the law.

Trustees of Trust Funds:

The principal of the trust funds is deposited in savings banks,
and all funds were accounted for by examination of the savings
banks' books. A check of the receipts and expenditures of
trust fund income was made, and the balance of income on
hand at the end of the year verified.

School District Treasurer:

The accounts of the school district treasurer were audited for
