Excerpt from Report of the Bank Commissioners, 1839, Vol. 5 The Commissioners entered upon the discharge of the duties assigned to them, as soon as practicable after their appointment, and have continued their examinations, with such diligence as their private avocations would allow, and the public interest seemed to require, to the present time. They have visited and examined one hundred and twelve Banks, and twenty-five Institutions for Savings, and they take great pleasure in stating, that wherever they have been, though their visits have, generally, been made without any previous notice, and have, sometimes, doubtless, happened at times not the thost convenient for the directors and other officers of the corporations, they have, uniformlv, been received, not only with courtesy but with apparent, and they doubt not, real, cordiality. The Commissioners were aware, that unexpected visits might subject the officers of Banks to some inconven ience, and themselves to some additional labor and delay, yet the advantages of seeing every day operations carried on in their every day dress, were so manifest, that they could not hesitate as to the proper course for them to take.
