About this Item

Great Salt Lake City: Joseph Cain, Public Printer, 1854. 8pp., on a folded folio sheet. A bit dusty, a few old creases, else near fine. In a folding cloth chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. An early Utah imprint, one of 100 copies printed. Asa Calkin, auditor of Utah Territory's public accounts, reports on monies spent and monies to be collected, including delinquencies due to nonpayment. He notes that county taxes have brought in nearly $8000 dollars, but that the Territory as a whole shows a delinquency of more than $19,000. Costs include $1250 for roads and bridges in Ogden and Weber, more than $2000 to the Tithing Office, $173.28 for the Arsenal; $867.39 for Indian Expeditions, more than $450 for the Library, etc. The least amount spent was $6, for Criminals. Calkin also complains about the tardy reporting of various Territorial officers, such as those of the University, which makes his job more difficult. Exasperated, he goes so far as to suggest imposing penalties on those who are late in reporting. This was Calkin's third and final auditor's report. He left Salt Lake City for the British Mission in 1855. Not in Flake. OCLC locates seven copies, at The New York Public Library, the Huntington Library, Brigham Young University, Utah State, Yale, the University of Utah, and Princeton. There are also copies at the Library of Congress, the Bancroft Library, and the Church History Library in Salt Lake City. An interesting report on finances, including internal improvements, in Utah, also disclosing the somewhat disorganized state of affairs in the early Territorial government. McMURTRIE, UTAH 24.
