Affairs of the Association

VII U. S. Government Bonds Held--All funds as of February
28, 1962.
VIII Trust and Agency Funds as of February 28, 1962.
These statements were prepared on the cash basis. However, as in
prior years, the statement of financial position includes receivables
and payables. The statements for the year ended February 28, 1961
are presented for comparative purposes only and were not subject
to audit by me. However, they were audited by other independent
certified public accountants.
My examination was made in accordance with generally accepted
auditing standards, except that my examination of receipts, which,
because of their nature, are not susceptible of complete check, was
confined to checking of the deposit of recorded receipts to the bank.
In my opinion, the accompanying financial statements present
fairly the financial position of the Texas State Historical Association
as of February 28, 1-962 (on a cash basis) and the recorded cash
transactions for the year then ended.
As supplemental information, the inventory count of books on
hand as of March 1, 1962, furnished by the officers of the Association,
is shown on Exhibit IX. Certified Public Accountant
