Excerpt from Report of the Commissioners Appointed to Disburse the $50, 000, Appropriated for the Relief of Families of MD. Vols: January Session, 1864

The undersigned respectfully submit, in connection with this report, a detailed tabular statement of the payments made to the different Regiments, Batteries and Companies, and a Recapitulation, showing the whole amount paid, the number of beneficiaries, and the average amount to each, as well as a statement of the account between them and the State. There remains on hand a balance of $3 03, which will be nearly if not quite expended in the transportation of the books, papers, 650. Of the Board to Annapolis. There are also, of office furniture, tine desk, two pine tables, five chairs, one settee, two boxes, and inkstands, cosgngoriginally $20 30, now in use by the city for the purpose of paying its relief fund to' soldiers' families, and which it is respectfully submitted might be left for their use, in return for courtesies received bv the Board from the city authorities.

A Word of explanation may perhaps be necessary concern ing the payment hythe Board of several of the Second Dela ware Infantry. Their application was ur d by Mr. Mafiit, the Comptroller, and others, on the groun that they were, in the words of the Act, Maryland Volunteers raised under the authority of the United States, and now in the service of the United States; that they had originally enlisted to enter a Maryland Regiment, but none being ready, in their zeal had entered the Second Delaware Regiment; that their fami lies were destitute and expected the bounty, and if it were not paid the effect would be unfavorable to future enlistments in that county. Though not fully satisfied that the parties came strictly within the provisions of the Act, still, as the number was small and the claim was urged by gentlemen ofstanding; and responsibility; the. Board decided to make the payment, amounting to $162. They hope their action in this particular, as well as their discharge of their general dfities, which, though calling for much labor, and occupying a large portion of time, have been performed without remuneration, may meet the approval 'of the honorable members of the As sembly of Maryland, With high. Respect.
