Mr. AYLESWORTH.

I think probably if second-hand books were being purchased and rebound, it would be a proper expenditure. But that is being done as a matter of private enterprise.

He was performing special services altogether outside of his ordinary work as keeper, and in regard to which, as the inspector has reported to me, very much more than that amount was saved to the government.

Mr. AYLESWORTH.

That is to purchase a small corner of property which we have coveted for a long time, but we have only now been able to obtain it. It is in the corner of the penitentiary reserve. The reserve is bounded by two streets, Cumberland street and Columbia street, and at the intersection, of these two streets was the residence of a judge, and an adjoining lot which approached almost up to the penitentiary wall. It was very desirable that that property should be added to the reserve, and we are now able to secure it.
