w and redeemed by the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund, under the provision in the charter, authorizing the redemption on the 3d Nov. 1817. My predecessor, in a letter to you, dated the 15th Nov. 1817, presented this claim to you, in connection with that for the principal of the stock then redeemed, with a request that you would be pleased to issue your warrant for the amount of both. The Treasurer’s draft, dated 25th Nov. 1817, No. 1325, was issued for the amount of the principal, and I am unable to trace any subsequent notice of the claim for interest, except as it stands on the books of the Bank as a claim upon the Government. There can, I presume, be no doubt of the justice of these claims, and I have, therefore, the honor to request, that you will be pleased to direct the payment of them. I have the honor to be, Sir, with great respect, * Your obedient servant, L. CHEVES, President. The Hon. WM. H. CRAwford, Secretary of the Treasury, City of Washington.

SIR: I had the honor, on the 14th of June last, to enclose to you an account of the expenditures of the bank for stationery used in the loan offices of the United States; and in your reply of the 18th of the same month, you were pleased to say that the account must remain unsatisfied until an appropriation for the purpose could be obtained, and that it would appear in the estimates for 1822. I now beg leave to enclose you an account, embracing the former, brought down to 30th November, 1821. ceive that the sum of $906 87 expended at the bank, is by estimate, but I have no doubt you will readily perceive that the estimate must be far below the actual expenditure, when you remark that it includes the period, from the establishment of the bank to the 1st January, 1819. For the other items, except $20 at Portsmouth, the bank is ready, if desired, to exhibit the vouchers.

I have, then, on the part of the bank, to ask the favor of you to cause the amount of the account now transmitted to be embraced by the appropriation act of 1822.

Sta: I have had the honor to receive your letter of the 27th instant. It will be exceedingly inconvenient to the Bank to give the government immediate credit here for the drafts on New Orleans for $125,000, and on Charleston for $20,000, at this moment, because, in the beginning of April, the demands upon us will be very heavy. We cannot, however, say that we will not do it, but we hope it is not necessary to require it to the whole extent, at this momett. It may be done on the 1st May next, by which time we will have an opportunity of making the ". arrangements. We will now, however inconvenient, meet your views so far as to embrace the public dividends which will be payable here on the 1st April next, which amount to $586,228 55, and the pensions being already provided for, we suppose this will substantially meet your wishes. The balance, though small, we hope you will not be obliged to draw for until the 1st May. §e draft on Baltimore shall be immediately put to your credit at New York, but you will be pleased to transmit it to the Bank, according to the arrangements between your Department and the Bank for the transfer of funds. I have the honor to be,

Sir, with great respect,
Your obedient servant,

Qffice Bank of the United States,
Savannah, April 11, 1822.

SIR: Mr. Pickins, an agent from the Tombeckbe Bank, arrived yesterday, with one hundred and twenty-six thousand eight hundred dollars, in notes, purporting to have been issued by the banks of Georgia, South Carolina, and Virginia, and a draft on Charleston at 10 days sight, for $1,500. It is the President's opinion, as well as mine, that this deposite was intended by you to be placed in the Bank of Darien, as the notes of the Georgia banks, if all genuine, could not be taken on deposite, (unless special.) inasmuch as an act of the legislature authorizes them to refuse specie payments to the Bank of the United States, or offices thereof, and interest, if sued. Enclosed, I have the honor of handing you a copy taken from Mr. Pickins’ instructions, who will forward you my receipt for the amount placed on special deposite, subject to the order of the Treasurer, or yourself.

I am, sir, respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
J. HUNTER, Cashier.
