My dear Sir
. . . Have you come to any decision about an application to Congress at this Session for the renewal of your Charter? The friends of the Bank here, with whom I have conversed, seem to expect the application to be made. The course of the President, in the event of the passage of a bill, seems to be a matter of doubt and speculation. My own be lief is that, if now called upon he would not negative the bill, but that if he should be re-elected the event might and probably would be different.
