Excerpt from Laws of New Hampshire, Vol. 10: Including Public and Private Acts, Resolves, Votes, Etc.; Second Constitutional Period, 1829-1835 An act was passed at the June session of the legislature in 1821, providing for a state tax of thirty thousand dollars. The population of the state at that time is given as or 55 per cent. Of the present population. It may be of interest to note some of the sala ries that were paid to state officials one hundred years ago. It seems that the salary question was prolific of much discussion in those days as well at the present time, for a committee of the legis lature was appointed in 1821 to report what compensation should be paid to various state officials, with the result that the governor's salary was fixed at $1200 per annum, the secretary of state's at $300, the state treasu'rer's at $600, and the attorney general's at $800. Members of the Council were paid two dollars per day dur ing the session of the legislature, the speaker of the house received two dollars and fifty cents a day and the president of the senate the same. The legislature assembled Monday afternoon of each week during the session and adjourned Saturday afternoon, work ing practically five days in the week.
