Letter to Andrew Jackson from Joseph Saul

New Orleans 12th May 1815

Dear Sir,
    Enclosed is a letter from me as Cashier of the Bank of Orleans by which you will perceive that the Bill drawn by you in my favour for $25000, is returned under certainly a hard case on our Institution it having enjoyed so little from the deposits of the Government or any of its officers, except the Marshall, and that we have been deprived of by an order from your worthy friend Hall-- so are matters managed in new Orleans-- our Directors principally are not only devoted to the Government but to the present administration and yet we bear all the brunt of the public business against us, whilst such men as Blanque &c who are the Directors of the other Banks are reaping the benefits of the Public deposits—Claibourn sees this & frequently speaks of it to me & yet has not independence to correct it altho it has existed for upwards of three years--
    I shall...whom I have so great... who has done so much for his countrys good. I have other reasons for wishing to see you there, and could you let me know the time when you who'd probably arrive I who’d manage to meet you-- however...T...Yrs &c

Jos Saul
