Circular - Bank of M'Ewen, King & Co., Holly Springs, Mississippi - The Commissioners, to whom has been entrusted for final settlement, the business of this Institution, take this method of advising the individual holders of the notes of this institution, that they should not suffer sacrifices of them, as they will certainly be redeemed.
In order to satisfy the community on this subject the commissioners submit the following brief statement of facts:
The business of the Institution, was, on the 6th March last, transferred to three Commissioners, in order to its speedy and final adjustment. Since which time no discounts have been made, and consquently no increase has been made of the amount in circulation; on the contrary the amount has been reduced since that time, more than two-thirds, and the amount of assets remaining in their hands, is amply sufficient to take up the remaining issues. Though they cannot render them at once available, and must therefore ask, that the holders of the notes and certificates, will exercise a little forbearance, until they can do so. To accomplish which, as speedily as practicable, no efforts will be spared on their part. In the mean time those who hold certificates and those who may hereafter make deposits, will receive interest on the same until paid.
The entire amount now remaining in circulation is less than $100,000, and in addition to the assets of the Institution; unincumbered property was mortgaged by the stockholders to secure its ultimate solvency, amounting in value, to about two and a half millions of dollars.
To satisfy the community still more fully, as to the solvency of this Institution, a list of names of the stockholders is appended; the number, respectability and known solvency of whom, ought to satisfy the minds of the most incredulous on this subject. These stockholders are all bound individually and collectively for the redemption of the issues of this Bank-as much bound as if each of them had signed every note in circulation.
The Institution has not purchased one dollar of its paper with other Mississippi currency, and will not do so. The debts due the Institution, unless speedily adjusted, will be collected through the courts as soon as it can be done, and the issues of this Bank will be redeemed at PAR with the best currency that can be procured.
Respectfully submitted by,
Names of Subscribers
