General notePreface to the third edition dated: Philadelphia, May 10, 1810.
General note"The following excellent essay, which appeared in the Philadelphia gazette, of the 23d April, embraces so many considerations which wholly escaped the writer of the Desultory reflections, and throw so much light on this very important subject, that it is thought advisable to annex it ... Appendix no. III, p. 38-44. Signed: P.B.
General noteThe essay was presumably written by Pierce Butler, former U.S. Senator from South Carolina, who was living in Philadelphia in 1810. Butler was among the speculators in the first Bank of the United States in 1791, and was three times director of its stockholders. Later he was twice appointed to the board of the second Bank of the United States. Cf. Bell, M. Major Butler's legacy, 1987, p. 87, 96.
