ERRATA AND OBSERVATIONS.

Page xxviii, sixth line from the top, in vote of Dec. 2, 1882, for “ Lunacy" read “Charities.”

Page xxxi, fourth line from the bottom. The expenses of the Out-Door Poor Department, here stated as $16,488.58, should be $16,491.58 as given in detail on page 102 of the Appendix and the true total for all the Departments should be $ 15,825.51. Same page: The receipts for support at the State Reform School were $1,802.27 instead of $1,802.47.

Page cxviii, last line, for 140 read 100.

Appendix, page 50, Table XII., last column; the Worcester Asylum figures should be $2,450.38 not $2,450.88.

Appendix, page 62, Table XVII., the “ Total of all Classes " 'for 1881 should be 7,706.

The Manual of Laws and Decisions, bound in with this Report as a special appendix, was printed in July, 1882, and gives the members of boards as they then stood, not as now serving. It has a separate paging and index.
