  1. 1

    Ripley presented a claim to the Nauvoo City Council on 14 January 1843, which was allowed 11 February 1843. The order was presumably written after the claim was allowed, though Sloan dated it 30 January 1843. The transaction was recorded in the Nauvoo City Treasury Ledger on 24 February 1843. (Claim from Alanson Ripley, 9 Dec. 1842; Nauvoo City Council Rough Minute Book, Nov. 1842–Jan. 1844, 2, 4, 8; Nauvoo City Treasury Ledger, 6, 48.)
