MVB, Senate remarks on Francis Henderson Jr. claim, 5 January 1824

The allowance of interest was opposed by Messrs. Lanman, Holmes, of Maine, Macon, and Van Buren, on the ground that the claim had not been before presented, and that the same principle which had been adopted in the settlement of other claims, of a similar nature, should be preserved in this case.

The question having been divided, the motion for striking out $23,500 prevailed; but, before question was taken on inserting the sum proposed by Mr. Barbour, the bill was ordered, on motion of Mr. Van Buren, to lie on the table.
