the said property shall be sold on the terms aforesaid, unless the proprietor shall,
on or before the first day of September next, give bond with security, to be approved
as aforesaid, for the payment of such balance, and that each of the said
securities, on the sale of any of his property, and taking bond payable to the

    VI.  And be it enacted, That the execution issued against the said Alexander Catlett

which ought to be applied to the balance due the state from the said Simon Nicholls,
Be it enacted, That the said Alexander Catlett shall account for all such
certificates as he hat received for taxes, with the interest thereon at and from
the time of receiving the same, which remain on hand not exchanged nor sold

thereon at and from the time of the purchase thereof; and that all such certificates,
or other certificates to the amount thereof, if discountable under the
consolidating act, shall be received by the treasurer, and applied to the credit of

administered by the treasurer, that the certificates he delivers in are to the amount
of all the certificates received by him in taxes, or purchased by the monies and
certificates he collected as aforesaid, and that the certificates he delivers in to the
treasury comprehend the amount of both principal and interest of all certificates
that he has received of the people as aforesaid, or that he or any other person for
him has purchased with monies or certificates which he collected of the people,
to the best of his knowledge; and no execution shall issue against the property of
the said Simon Nicholls as directed by this act, until the said Alexander Catlett
shall account as aforesaid, after deducting out of the said money and certificates
such allowance as may be made the said Alexander Catlett by the commissioners
of the tax for Montgomery county in the settlement of his account, in manner
hereafter directed.
