Thirty-Ninth Annual Meeting            577


end of the biennium, but the "improvement of the grounds" has

not yet been started.

We wish at this time to submit the following extract from

the deed of conveyance to the Society from Miss Clarissa C.

Moor of the tract referred to above:

"Provided always and these presents are upon this express

condition that the premises hereby conveyed shall be used for a

park and monument site and approaches. Said grantee, its suc-

cessors and assigns shall within a period of seven years of the

date hereof, improve said premises by grading, seeding to lawn,

planting with shrubbery and trees and fencing, by improving

in a suitable manner roadways upon the rights of way herein

granted and by the erection thereon of a monument suitably com-

memorating the Battle of Fallen Timbers, to cost not less than

$20,000.00 and further that said grantee, its successors and as-

signs shall provide for the upkeep and repair of said premises

and maintain the same in an attractive condition generally."

This deed is recorded on page 344, vol. 549 in Lucas Coun-

ty. It was executed Jan. 3, 1921, and recorded Jan. 28, 1921.

We believe it is of the utmost importance that the Budget

Committee of the Society be instructed by the Board of Trus-

tees to use their utmost endeavor to secure a suitable appropria-

tion from the legislature so that the conditions of the above deed

may be fully complied with.
