1820.023: Opinion of the Treasurer on Voting Rights in Bank of Virginia Stock.

Published: 1820

Full Title: [Letter from the treasurer relative to the right of voting in a meeting of the stockholders of the Bank of Virginia].

Author: Baker, Jerman (1776-1828), treasurer.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: John Warrock

Description: Unrecorded


No copy known extant; here the new treasurer, Jerman Baker, reported the opinion that the treasurer was entitled by law to vote at stockholders' meetings of Bank of Virginia, despite protests of the bank's directors, and that the treasurers before the recently-dismissed John Preston (1760-1827) had exercised that right regularly. Swem recorded a payment voucher for 50 copies of a committee report on this subject, but neither the House or Senate journals record order to print either the letter or such a report; quantity here indicates this was a Senate imprint, rather than a House one, which were ordered in counts of 250 or 500, so attribution here to John Warrock, the Senate's printer.
