Senate Journal 1834 (30-318511-P013A.pdf)

12 the Commonwealth of Massachusetts respecting the towns owned in common by the two States, and ratified by a Resolve of the Legislature, passed on the ninth day of March, 1832. In this agreement the mode is particularly specified by which the authority therein given to the Land Agents, may be suspended, and it is provided, "that the Executive of either State may suspend the authority of the Agent of that State, in the sale of land, timber &c, until the meeting of the Legislature, and to the end thereof, unless in the meantime the Legislature shall otherwise direct the Agents aforesaid. This agreement has been acted upon by the Land Agents of the two States, and to suspend their authority in a manner different from the one stipulated, would be a violation of the agreement on the part of this State. But in order for the object of the Legislature might be effected, in a manner not liable to objection, the Executive Department, on the 9th day of March last, by an order, suspended the authority of the Land Agent of this State, to sell the land and timber in common to the two States and communicated the fact to the Executive of Massachusetts. Augusta Jany 1, 1834 Saml. E. Smith
