Jonathan Burrall wrote from New York, New York to Susan U. Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Burrall informed Susan that he had received her Bank Book from Mr. Ghan and all entries up to the present date were made. Mr. Ghan would return the Bank Book to her. Observed that a Power of Attorney was not necessary to transfer stocks from the Books of the Treasury to those of the Commissioner of Loans in the State of New York, but the Certificates needed to be sent to the Register of the Treasury, with Susan’s request that they be transferred to the Books of the Commissioner of Loans in New York. However, it was necessary to send a Power of Attorney to the Cashier of the Bank of the United States to receive the interest up to June 30, as the new certificate for placing it in New York will have interest from July 1. Advised that Mr. Niemcewicz join in the power to prevent the necessity of a certificate respecting their marriage contract. Burrall and his wife joined in congratulating Susan on her marriage.
