This is the Auditor General's reply to my letter explaining the complaints registered against the 1940 County Audit, upon which yon wrote an article. Leonard J. McManrmin VEUNON J. BROWN Auditor General Lansing, Michigan November 27, 1941 Mr. L. J. McMauman Prosecuting Attorney Bessemer, Michigan Dear Mr. McManman: Thank you for your informative letter of the I9th. It IB to be regretted that all ot the facts which you point out In your letter were not made known to the auditors or to this department before the release of the audit report. Perhaps the fact that Gogebic County is so far removed from the State Capitol is one of the reasons why there some times grow up certain misunderstandings. I am thoroughly satisfied with the disposition of the'matters under criticism and of the reforms already instituted. I believe we are on the right track now and.that hereafter better procedure will prevail. Cordially yours (·lined) Vernon J.
