Description

Excerpt from Explanatory Statement by the Annapolis and Elk-Ridge Railroad Company on the Subject of So Much of the Governor's Message and the Comptroller's Report as Relates to That Company: January Session, 1864 It is submitted that the Governor and Comptrollcr are mis taken in the views they have expressed of the Act of 1841, chapter 168, and of the obligations of this Company, under its provisions. They appear to be under the impression that the interest and principal of the bonds, issued in virtue of that Act were to have been paid out of the funds of the Company, and not by the funds of the State; whereas, the circumstances, under which the Act was passed, as well as the language and import of the Act, show that the Legislature intended these obligations should be provided for by the State, in case there should be no nett profits of the Company, payable into the Treasury, agreeable to its charter, (1836, chapter298.) The very words ofthe Act admit of no doubt as to the design of the Legislature. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
