Mount Auburn Cemetery

Mount Auburn February 14 1863

To the Trustees of Mount Auburn Cemetery

Gentleman, As the regular annual meeting for the choice of offices &c. takes place on Monday next, I beg leave to submit the following for your consideration,

I entered upon the duties of Superintendent on the first of September 1861 at a salary of $1000 00/r year and I have devoted my whole time, and exerted all my energies, for the best interests of the Corporation! How well I have discharged those duties, Your own personal observation, together with the Reports of the Treasurer and Superintendent, will better satisfy you than anything I may say! but knowing as I now do from experience, how constant, and arduous are the duties of the office, and which are daily increasing as new properties are added to the list

[on verso after fold]

D.L. Windsor Application for increased Salary Feby. 14 1863 Feby. 16. 1863 Board of Trustees, voted that the Supt Salary be $1,500.-- Att: A.J.C. Secy

and care increasing in consequence of the present style of enclosing their lots with Stone, instead of [crow?] fences, to say nothing of other changes that have been made, that if you see fit to reelect me for the ensuing year, I respectfully ask you gentlemen to increase my salary. The Expenses of living has increased 33 % during the 18 months I have been here, and up to this present time, I have drawn over and above my Salary the sum of $42500 from my private resources, in order to defray the current expenses of my family, which altho it is not large, is by no means extravagant!

Hoping you will take this matter into consideration

I remain your most obedient Servant Daniel L. Winsor
