Respectfully submitted,

H. B. MACKINTOSH, Treasurer. Boston, Jan. 1, 1885.

This certifies that we have examined the books and accounts of the Treasurer of the Proprietors of the Cemetery of Mount Auburn for the year eighteen hundred and eighty-four, and have found them correctly kept and properly balanced, with satisfactory vouchers for all payments.

The certificates of stock and other evidences of property were found in accordance with the statements of his accounts.

In the general account there appears to be a balance in the hands of the Treasurer of $12,275.11, and in the fund for repairs, $42,741.41.
