To the honorable Henry J. Jewett, Judge presiding.
The Grand Jury for the County of Dallas in obedience to that portion of your honor's charge relating to the public buildings of said county beg leave to make the following presentment. That there is situated in the Town of Dallas a good and substantial jail which with a little improvement and repairs would be a safe place to confine persons who subject themselves to confinement to the county jail. That, owing to the unsettled condition of land titles in this county (p. 431) but little revenue heretofore been collected from the holders of real estate and from this cause the county court has been unable to construct a suitable house in which to hold the several courts of the county. But a change has during the last year taken place in the pecuniary conditions of the citizens of Dallas County, where a few years ago all was uncertainty of the titles of land and property everything has been quitted, patents are being daily issued by the state, farms are being opened. Lands increasing in value in a almost incredible ratio and general prosperity appears in every portion of the county. Indeed such and so striking are the changes for the better that they think no sufficient excuse or apology can any longer be offered for not having a good court house for the court of Dallas! They are informed that there is now under the control of the county court about $1,500 or $2,000 arising from the sale of the lots in Dallas donated by Colonel Bryan to the county for the purpose of building a court house, this amount added to the state taxes which has been relinquished to the county for the years 1854 & 55 they think is amply sufficient to build a good and substantial brick or frame court house that would be highly creditable to the county, a county justly celebrated abroad as the first grain growing county in the state! The grand jury would therefore recommend to the county court of Dallas County the early construction of a good court house believing the state tax relinquished as aforesaid should be applied to such a purpose. 
The grand jury take this occasion to return their thanks to your honor for the quiet, dignified, and impartial manner in which you have discharged the duty of presiding judge of Dallas County; they think that your conduct as a judge reflects much credit upon the voters of the District by whom you were elected and is at the same time a successful and complete vindication of the Republican Doctrine, that the people are capable of self government all of which is respectfully submitted and prayed to be spread upon the minutes of the court and that the same may be published in the Dallas Herald. /signed/ Andrew J.
