Description

Excerpt from Documents Printed by Order of the General Assembly of North Carolina, 1835 With a Treasury barely sufficient to meet the current expenses of the Govern ment, without resorting to loans, it would be idle to recommend the adoption of any measurcs connected with the general improvement of either the physical or intel lectual resources of the country.

Be provided by the government in time to meet the growing exigencies of the country. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
