J. M. Cashier.
Savannah, 12th April, 1822.
SIR: I arrived here on the 9th inst, as an agent of the Tombeckbe Bank, with instructions to deposite one hundred and twenty-six thousand eight hundred dollars, in the Branch Bank of the United States at this place, E. I should meet no instructions from the Secretary of the Treasury ere, directing the deposite to be made at Darien. Finding no such instructions here, I have deposited the money in the Branch Bank of the United States at this place, as a special deposite. I also brought on a draft on Duke Goodman, of Charleston, for fifteen hundred dollars, with instructions to deposite the same as so much cash, added to the above sum, provided that the bank would so receive it; and, in the event of its refusal to receive it as cash, to place it with the Cashier for collection; to be credited, when collected, to the Treasury of the United States. I herewith transmit you the Cashier's duplicate receipt for the money above mentioned, and also for the draft which he is to collect. I am, very respectfully, Your very humble servant, SAMUEL PICKINS,
Office Bank of the United States,
Received from Samuel Pickins, Esq. agent for the Tombeckbe Bank, to be placed as a special deposite to the credit of the Treasurer of the United States, and subject to his, or to the order of the Secretary of the Treasury, eleven thousand and five dollars, in notes of the Bank of Augusta; sixtyone thousand one hundred and seventy-nine dollars, in the notes of the Bank of Darien; twenty-five thousand two hundred and seventy dollars, in the notes of the Bank of the state of Georgia; five hundred and twenty-five dollars, in the notes of the Planters’ Bank; twenty-five thousand six hundred and twenty-five dollars, in the notes of the banks of South Carolina; and of the notes of the banks of the state of Virginia, three thousand one hundred and ninety-six dollars; making in all, one hundred and twentysix thousand eight hundred dollars, purporting to have been issued by banks which have had paper so well counterfeited as to impose on their •wn officers. It is not, therefore, possible for the undersigned to say, whether those above enumerated are all genuine or not. The notes of the Georgia banks, even 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. I have also received Samuel Maverick’s draft on Duke Goodman of Charleston, at 10 days sight, for fifteen hundred dollars, which, when paid, will be held subject to the order of the Treasurer or Secretary of the Treasury, and for all of which I have signed duplicate re
ceipts. J. HUNTER, Cashier.
