Soule and Mason received Finley's letter and are unhappy to hear that the banking institutions in the western country are in such bad condition. They express the hope that establishment of the United States Bank will in time result in the regulation of these institutions. They advise Finley that notes from Chillicothe, Marietta, and Steubenville are best for the Book Concern, as are large denomination notes. In response to Finley's query about damaged books, Soule and Mason give permission to sell them at a discounted price, but advise that Finley keep very careful records. As regards the new Book Concern publication, Methodist Magazine, subscribers may opt to receive 12 issues by mail if they pay in advance. Abstract Number - 564
