It gives me pleasure to call attention to the efficiency, capability, and good conduct of all the heads of sections in the office. Their assistance and knowledge have been of great advantage. I can also, with very little exception, bestow the same praise on the clerks who have co-operated with me and their cbiefs in performing their work with credit to themselves and to the department. Mr. William B. Moore, the competent and faithful deputy Fourth Auditor, in the last as in previous years, has been a constant aid, help, and assistant.

The affairs of the office are in good condition, and the work is kept up as fully and completely as the clerical force allowed by the act of August 15, 1876, will permit. Every effort has been made to attend to all business with promptitude, courtesy, and correctness, and I trust that it is not too much to say that these efforts bave been efficiently and satisfactorily accomplished. I shall constantly endeavor, in the performance of my duties, to render you every assistance in ing power to make the department all that its vast scope, functions, and necessities demand. I have the honor to be, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
