The Bearer Mr. David Maitland is a partner in my House of Commerce & my particular friend he solicits the honour of being known to you, and I trust you will excuse the liberty I take in introducing him. Mr. Maitland wishes to become a Citizen of America & I have heard that there is a shorter way of getting at this benefit, than an absolute residence of two years in the Country, if such exists...
I am this moment favored with your Letter of the 23rd, saying it will be agreable to you that deposits be received towards subscriptions to the Bank of the United States to the extent of Forty thousand Dollars more upon the same principals with those for the Sixty thousand. This extention of Forty thousand Dollars is already all engaged, and I have applicants names set down for Thirty three...
I had the pleasure to receive your kind Letter of yesterday, this day at 10 o’Clock. We have no public Sales of Stocks now in the Evenings—therefore I can not go into the Market till tomorrow, and altho the sum is small, yet be assured it will be a relief. The Collector has furnished the List of Names of those who have duties to pay between this and the first of May, and our Directors have...
I have made a long delay in answering your favours of the 12th & 19th. owing to not being able to meet with Col. Walker to settle the Bill for 300 Dollars. He has just sent me word that he will call up & pay it tomorrow. The amount will then be past to your Credit in Bank. I shall watch a favorable opportunity for the disposal of your Stock —at present it does not go beyond 27 or 28 ⅌ Cent...
I have the honor to inform you that this day I have sold the Treasurers Bills on Amsterdam for 25,000 Guilders to Different persons at the price you limitted of 36/4/11 Ninetieths per Guilder payable by Notes at 90 Days, in which Notes I have included the Interest for 33 Days, as all the purchasers chose to avail themselves of that indulgence, given in your Letter of the 24 Decbr. I have no...
The President & Directors desire me to acknowledge the receipt of your two Letters of the 13th. and to express how very much they feel obliged to you, for your kind attention to this Institution and thereby to the Commerce of this City. Whenever the Treasurer deposits the Bills on Amsterdam which you mention, the Strictest attention shall be paid to your orders with respect to the Sale of...
I received your Letter by the Express on fryday Morning, previous to which I had been relieving a few by purchases of Stock upon the Strength of the second extention of fifty thousand Dollars At Noon I went into the Market, but the applications were so numerous & so vastly beyond my expectation, I found it necessary to declare I could take but very small sums from each. However notwithstanding...
The Merchants of this City who have lately gone to, & returned from Philadelphia, have asserted at the Coffee House they were well informed that the Bank of Pensilvania had offered to give immediate Credit to the Treasurer of the United states for such drafts on the Collectors of the Imposts &c as he should lodge there for Sale. The President and Directors of this Bank anxious to do every...
I have delayed answering your very kind Letter of the 24th till I could have a more ⟨detailed⟩ knowledge of what was going on. Col Duer tells me he has however written you in the mean while. Every Interest is rushing by the phalanx of opposition with our Legislature to grant them a Charter —and it is impossible yet to judge whether they will carry their point or not. The Committee have...
Mr. William Hill with two competant Surities have duely executed the Bond endorsed in your letter of the 21st. and I have deliver’d to him the Contract. As you do not desire the Bond to be returned, I hold it for your further orders. Mr. Hill expected he was to receive immediately from this Bank a payment of Five thousand Dollars, but he was informed your orders did not extend to the payment....
Agreably to your desire I now enclose Copies of all the Letters I received from you respecting the purchase of Public Debt. I hope no disagreable event has occurred to cause a review of what was so eminently beneficial to the Community at large. The present high rate of Exchange & the over great Importations from Europe, I fear will soon begin to drain the Banks of Specie—unless the price of...
