We recommend the State National Bank's employee descriptions from 1930, here.
|“Maysville, Kentucky, is among the most lively towns of the west, and its business is greatly increasing, because of improved roads, &c. Its importations, at an ascertained value for the last year, were worth $1,021,000, and its exports $504,000. It is a place of deposits; the weight of the merchandise received and sent into the interior was 6,772 tons. The people of the town much need banking facilities, and, we hope, will obtain them, though generally opposed as we are sure to an increase of money-corporations.” From the Niles Register, January 31, 1835|
