L[ouis] M[c]L[ane] to MVB, 4 June 1833

My Dear Sir,

Before you finally dispose of the deposit question I beseech you to read attentively the paper I prepared for the President in which I have endeavoured faithfully to trace the effects of the proposed change under the circumstances on the public service and upon the Country. God knows I have no love for the present Bank and my opinions are the result of my honest convictions of right and propriety. Something, undoubtedly, is due to the new Secretary who should not be driven to the step at least before the Senate have acted upon his nomination. Therefore if anything be done let it be postponed ‘till the Session and let the President enforce his views in a Message.

Yours faithfully,

L. M'L.
