John Pendleton Kennedy writes to the President of the Bank of Baltimore to inform him of the decision to move a case regarding Richard G. Cox to a concern of the Court of Law, dated July 16, 1834, Baltimore, Maryland.


To the President of the Bank of Baltimore Dear Sir On the part of Col[?] Tenant it is our duty to inform the Bank that differing as we do from the Board in the view they have taken of their responsibility for the defalcation of Richard G. Cox after these defalcations became known to the Bank, we have thought it desirable to refer the subject to the decision of a Court of Law, and in order that this may be done with the least truth to the parties interested, and in a manner liking to insure a full and speedy adjustment of the points of difference between them, we by [?], through you, to prepare that suit on either side shall be docketed by consent at the next term of the Court and that under pleas of the general if so all such matters shall be presented to the court (which being given to the parties respectively interested) as shall bring up the entire merit of the question in controversy. Vry repectfully yours John P Kennedy US ? Balt. July 16. 1836
