18            VOTES and PROCEEDINGS, November, 1796.

at the time of his election, possessed of property within the state above the value of £. 500 current
money, as required by the constitution and form of government of this state, report, that from an
account laid before the committee, and signed by the collector of the taxes in Harford county, it
appears, that the assessable property of said John Montgomery in the county aforesaid is estimated
to the value of sixty-five pounds current money; but your committee do not deem the said account
conclusive evidence as to the value of said Montgomery's property, or a just criterion by which the
house can decide on a case of this nature.  Your committee further report, that a schedule of property,
amounting to the sum required by the constitution and form of government, and verified by
the oath of the said John Montgomery, has been laid before them, from which they are of opinion,
that the said John Montgomery was eligible as a delegate for Harford county, and therefore entitled
to keep his seat in this house.
                                                        By order,                                        S.  LUCKETT, clk.
    Which was read the first and second time, and the question put, That the house concur therewith?
