Description
In answer to his note stating that he (Bancker) had been directed to report to the Assembly the causes which have obstructed the collection of taxes in arrears, he would say that Bancker's letter was delayed in reaching him because of his absence from home; that he finds he can not advise him upon the subject without a personal conference; but will call on him as soon as court adjourns and he is through with the public prosecutions.
