The report of the committee was accepted and the petition approved by the Board and Mr. Dixon was chosen to present the petition and consult with the committee of council to whom it might be referred.

And after a full discussion it was moved and adopted that the Music Committee be authorized to confer with the choir and procure a regular organist at a cost not to exceed $12.00 per month.
An amendment to this was also adopted, authorizing the Music Committee to solicit subscriptions for anything it might cost in excess of this appropriation of $12.00 per month to secure such against.
An expense of $1.00 damage on the piano returned was reported by the Music Committee and approved and ordered paid.
