On 29 June 1841, Carlos Gove submitted a claim to the Nauvoo City Council, which was presumably approved about 2 July 1841, when, on the same page, John C. Bennett wrote this order to the city treasurer to pay Gove. Apparently, there were no funds in the treasury in July 1841 to pay Gove. The city council took up the claim at their 17 February 1842 meeting and approved the money, which was paid to Gove on 16 May 1842.
