Perryopolis, August 1, 1845—Perry School Treasurer William Martin, Esq., said today that he has received a warrant in the amount of $126.42, that being the Perry Common School District's share of the State's School Appropriation for the 1846 school year. That represents forty-nine cents for each or the 258 taxable citizen in the Perry Common School District, State Superindentent of Common Schools J. Miller said.

Readers kindly note that while the very punctilious news team makes every effort to keep up with current events, news items such as the one above are sometimes unavoidably delayed in reaching us. We apologize to our readers for the 163-year delay in publishing this News. We nonetheless believe that it is in the Public Interest to report such News when and as we are able, to assure the 258 Taxpayers of the Perry Common School District of the proper apportionment of their State Appropriation.
We are indebted to Mr. Craig Martin, a descendant of William Martin, and to Ruthie Shields, for making this historic document available. A warrant is a check. There were no typewriters in 1845, so this is a pre-printed form with blank spaces for dates, amounts, names, and titles to be written by hand.
