MVB to G[orham] A[kin] Worth, [16 December 1817]

My dear Sir,

This goodly City is in uproar on the subject of a branch of the U. States bank. I have endeavoured to keep out of the solicitude which the contemplated measure has excited but the suggestion that you would probably consent to accept the situation of Cashier has induced me to take an Interest in the subject. There are two distinct Interests the one headed by your quondam friend Mr. Jenkins the other by Mr Deniston, my name is on the list of the former & your friend Mr Dudly is partially with the latter. All this confusion is the result of circumstances which I have not time to detail to you. The object of this note is to apprise you of what is going on in the hope that something from you to Mr Smith may possibly reach in season although I fear that the thing will be done with before you read ^receive^ this. I write tomorrow to Mr. Bowne in which I will press your appointmt by every consideration which I can think of & will authorise him to shew my letter to Mr Smith.

Mr Dudly has promised to write to Mr Lawrence to the same effect

Yours very sincerly

& in great haste

not forgetting my best

respects & Mrs. VBurens to

Mrs Worth
