FEBRUARY 1, 1877.-Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds discharged and referred to the Committee on Printing.
To the Senate and House of Representatives:
I transmit, herewith, the catalogues and report of the Board on behalf of the Executive Departments at the International Exhibition of 1876, with their accompanying illustrations.
The labors performed by the members of the Board, as evinced by the voluminous mass of information found in the various papers from the officers charged with their preparation, have been, in the highest degree, commendable; and believing that the publication of these papers will form an interesting memorial of the greatest of International Exhiitions, and of the Centennial Anniversary of the Independence of our country, I recommend that they be printed in a suitable form for disribution and preservation.
The letter of the chairman of the Board will give to Congress the history of its organization, the laws and Executive orders under which has acted, and the steps which have been taken to preserve the large and instructive collections made, with a view to their forming a part of National Museum, should Congress make the necessary appropriations for such a desirable object.
