Jacinto Miss July 5th 1867
County Treasurer of Tishomingo County can pay nothing except upon the amount of the county clerk based upon an allowance and order of the board of Police of the county. No money has been in the treasury since the 1st Jany last (When the present treasurer came into office) and there is no probability of any being received before the 1st Jany next. The police could make allowances for the support of paupers upon the report of the petition of the proper District to said Court. No claims of this kind have been allowed and it is believed that said Court has no authority to allow such claim. 
Burial Expenses have been allowed those intering paupers but without authority of law as the Court believes.

It is believed that the Court has no authority to pay expenses already incurred in support of paupers care only provide for the future when brought before it according to law.
