Scope and Content Note

This volume contains information compiled from series A0607, Journals of Governors' Actions and Decisions, to provide the governor's staff with improved access to especially heavily-used types of information recorded in the journals.

The volume is divided into two sections. The first, an index to notary public appointments, provides the following information for each notary: date of commission; page (in volume from series A0607 covering year of commission); name; county; and date (apparently of expiration of previous commission).

The second section of the volume is a ledger containing information about applicants for offices such as: Physician of Marine Hospital; Canal Appraiser; Auditor of the Canal Department; Commissary General; Commissioner of Deeds; Harbor Master; Port Warden; State Assessor; Wreck Master; Loan Commissioner; county coroner; and military offices. Information provided about applicants for each office includes: date (apparently of application; in some cases may be appointment date); page (in volume from series A0607 covering year of application or appointment); name; city or county of residence; and if application denied.
