The recommendation of the Legislature will no more operate as a bar to future improvements than a similar recommendation proceeding from individuals. It will be effectual only so far as it is supported by public opinion. The work recommended will continue to be read so long as it retains its peculiar value, and no longer; and will be superseded in the same manner, and with the same facility as other books are superseded, when another work on the same subject of superior merit, and equally adapted to the use of the schools, shall appear.

In conclusion, your committee cannot bụt express their earnest hope that the resolutions from the Senate will be sanctioned, and rendered effectual by the unanimous vote of this House.

IN ASSEMBLY,

April 8, 1833.

REPORT

of the committee on claims, on the petition of Fran

cis Mayotte and others.

Mr. Russell, from the committee on claims, to which was referred the petition of Francis Mayotte and others, heirs at law of Augustine Mayotte deceased, a Canadian refugee, praying compensation for the services of their said father in the war of the revolution,

REPORTED:

Though the facts attending the claim of the petitioners in this case are different, the principle involved is not distinguishable from that in the case of Toussaint Lavernway, herewith submitted, to which the committee beg leave to refer for the reasons which induce them to offer for the consideration of the House the following resolution:

Resolved, That the prayer of the petitioners, Francis Mayotte and others, ought not to be granted.
