Report of the Congressional inquiry into issues regarding the Bank of the United States. Among the issues under investigation are the violation of the Bank's charter and general mismanagement. The affixed signature is that of the William C. Bradley (1782-1867), a Congressman from Vermont. A quarrel with John Quincy Adams, which turned him to the support of Jackson, caused him to leave Washington politics when only forty-five, though he remained active in state politics in Vermont. He was variously a Jacksonian Democrat, a member of the Free- Soil party, and eventually a member of the burgeoning Republican party. This copy from the Bradley Family library. SHOEMAKER 29202 ref.
