I, John Roberts, of the city of Detroit, being duly sworn, do depose and say, that on or about the 7th September last, I bought of John Norton, jr., a draft on the City bank of New York, for $1,007, in favor of Reynolds and Baily, for which I paid said Norton, $1,207, in the money of the Bank of Oakland, being about twenty per cent premium for said draft; that the number and letters of the bills of said Bank of Oakland, which I sold to said Norton, are correctly described, I verily believe, in the letter of Reynolds and Baily, dated New York, 16th August, 1838, and directed to R. E. Roberts, to which I refer, and marked (A.) and
further saith not. JOHN ROBERTS.
Sworn and subscribed to before me, this 19th March, 1839. O. HAWKINS,

I, John D. Pierce, do hereby depose and say, that, according to my knowledge and belief, I have never paid into the Michigan state bank, (as Superintendent of Public Instruction,) any money as special deposite, nor have I deposited any money but such as was bankable in the city of Detroit, at the time of making such deposites. I have deposited about seventy thousand dollars, all which was in current funds, and receivable on general deposite in Detroit. The above deposition I mean to apply as well to any agent or person by me entrusted, as well as to myself. JOHN D. PIERCE. Sworn and subscribed before me, this 29th March, 1839. O. HAWKINS, Chairman Com. Incorporations.
tificate of deposite, $5,000 00 Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania, 3,000 00 Michigan safety fund, 4,681 00 $13,681 00 17.

I examined the moneys above described, which were deposited by Mr. Pierce in the Michigan state bank, and from my recollection of the kind of funds, should suppose that the above statement was correct. The above packages were sealed by me, and contained no funds but what were current at Detroit, at the time the several amounts were deposited. The Michigan money was redeemed soon after it was deposited. , I make the statement at the request of Mr. Pierce.

This may certify, that I deposited in the Michigan state bank, to the credit of John D. Pierce, Oct. 1, 1838, $950, two-thirds of the amount being eastern funds, the balance current Michigan funds of chartered banks, except $50, which was Michigan safety fund banks.
Nov. 8–I made another deposite of $1,550; of this amount $800 was specie; about $510 eastern funds, the balance Michigan chartered funds, except about $70, which was of Michigan safety funds. I have also deposited at other times, amounts varying from $50 to $250, the proportion of which would be much
of eastern funds than the above larger amounts.
