[Senate Joint Resolution No. 59.]

JOINT RESOLUTION

Requesting the governor of the state of Connecticut to turn over to the Western

Reserve Historical Society for safe keeping, certain papers and documents.

WHEREAS, The Western Reserve Historical Society, a duly incorporated organization of the state of Ohio, well equipped with a large, commodious fire-proof building, vaults and other means for safe-guarding relics, papers and documents pertaining to the Western Reserve Historical Society; and,

WHEREAS, The said society has from time to time accumulated from the descendants of the agents of the original Connecticut Land Company and from various other sources a great mass of documents and papers pertaining to the said land company and its occupancy of the western reserve; and,

WHEREAS, There is yet in the possession of the state of Connecticut a large number of papers and documents pertaining to this land company which we feel should be on the reserve, as they are of more vital interest to those living on the reserve than they can be to the state of Connecticut; therefore,

Be it resolved by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio:

That we would respectfully ask that the governor of the state of Connecticut turn over to the Western Reserve Historical Society for safe keeping, such papers and documents as belonged to the Connecticut Land Company, and which do not belong to the category of papers that are considered state papers and which should rightly be preserved by the state. The papers desired consist of special land commissions, minutes of the Connecticut Land Company, deeds, mortgages and leases and also documents pertaining to the commissioner of schools, which cover the lands located on the reserve.

SECTION 2. All taxes and exemptions in force when this amendment is adopted shall remain in force, the same manner and to the same extent, unless and until otherwise directed by statute.
