From Joseph Marx

Richmond 27th sept 1819


The papers enclosed in Your letter under the 20th as also the Bond, have been delivred at the office of the United States Bank, The members of the Board of Directors are fully satisfied of the ample security offerd, and of the promptness with which the call has been met

The Counsel for that Institution has pointed out some desirable alterations, which however appear to be matter of Form, not affecting the substance, particulars of which the President or Cashier will hand You by the next Mail, in the mean it were probably best to postpone recording the Deed as intended

I have the honor to be Respectfully

sir Your most ob st

Joseph Marx
