At the 11 March 1843 Nauvoo City Council meeting, James Sloan presented a certificate stating that the judges and clerks for the 8 Feb. 1843 city election were entitled to three dollars each. The judges (George W. Harris, Daniel Spencer, and Benjamin Warrington) relinquished their claims, but the clerks (John A. Forgeus and Sloan) were issued orders. This transaction was recorded in the Nauvoo City Treasury Ledger on 15 June 1843. (Claims from George W. Harris and Others, 8 Feb. 1843; Nauvoo City Council Rough Minute Book, Nov. 1842–Jan. 1844, 12; Nauvoo City Treasury Ledger, 94.)
