The Bank Subscription is filled. The deficit of the general returns, 3,000,000. Dollars, was taken by Mr. Girard, in a single line, to the great disappointment of the Brokers and Speculators. I congratulate you upon this event. There is little doubt of the organization of the Bank being republican, and friendly to the Government.
The Cumberland road presents new embarrassments; and I Shall have occasion to trouble you upon the Subject, as soon as I reach Washington, which will probably be on Sunday next. I am, Dear Sir, most respectfully & faithfully Yrs.
