Title Papers (1798)
An ACT to amend an act, entitled “An Act Concerning the Original Title Papers of Land in this State, remaining in the Register’s Office in the State of Virginia”
Approved by the Kentucky General Assembly on February 3, 1798
WHEREAS unavoidable delays have prevented the act passed at the February session, entitled “An Act Concerning the Original Title Papers of Land in this State, Remaining in the Register’s Office in the State of Virginia,” from being carried into effect; and from the great expense attending the execution of the said business, it is necessary that further provision be made for completing the same:
BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, That Edmund Thomas, the agent for the state, shall have the further time of nine months to complete the business enjoined him, according to the above recited act, any thing to the contrary notwithstanding; and shall moreover be allowed the sum of three thousand dollars, in addition to the sum already received, for finally completing the business enjoined him by the act aforesaid, one half of which he is entitled to receive on his requesting the same, and the other half on his producing the governor’s certificate of his having completed the business; and the auditor shall issue his warrant accordingly.
This act shall be in force from the passage thereof.
