Said administrator would show to the Court that he has still remaining in his hands for disbursement $71.84. The Court cost and expense for final settlement is still to come out of the above amt. Said administrator has no effects in his hands belonging to said estate except a note for 75$ on SIDNEY MOORE and a small account on MRS. CHAILLE for 7 or 8$ dollars. I think both claims are worthless. After paying all the claims in last sickness, burial expenses & cost of Court in full I have paid (20) percent on the other claims filed. I know of no other claims except a small claim in the hand of W. A. & J. C. RHEA. One in the hands of A. & W. HUNSTABLE for 3 or 4$. Neither of which have been presented to me for allowance.

Said estate is wholly insolvent as will be seen by reference to claims docket filed against said estate.

Said administrator ask[s] that notice be given as required by law and that this administrator be discharged from said trust &c.

He shows that he sold the above named articles on credit of six months. That he took the note of the purchasers with good personal security for the amounts of their purchases.

He also states that he did not sell the chickens as he was directed for the reason that the cholera was at that time prevailing among them and a fair price could not be had for them on this account. And he now asks that he be allowed and permitted to sell the chickens at private sale.

He further states that said sale was fairly made. That all of said articles sold for their fair valuation. Wherefore he asks that this report be approved and for general & special relief.
