1827-02-16, Governor's message on the Salem Mozart Association
H.R. No. 51 Governor's message relative to the Salem Mozart Association, February 16, 1827. [The first page was folded over enough to obscure some
text.] This was a veto message. The bill proposed a corporation for improving the performance of church music. The group could hold property to the
value of $10,000! The Governor thought this meant that real estate of that value would be removed from individual to corporate control in perpetuity.
[The text of the bill was not present; most corporation bills heretofore have had a terminal date, but perhaps this one did not.] He returned the bill
with three objections: 1) it was unnecessary to achieve the group's stated goals 2) it set an unsafe precedent 3) withdrawing property from individual
to corporate management without an end date was unwise. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State
