I.Mr. Fish were not specifically mou
.tloned In that letter.
Hie most conspicuous of these Is
that while .Mr. Fish was president ot
your company, nnd as such the vir
tual custodian of its treasury, ho
loaned to himself, a sau Individual,
about $1,100,000 from the treasury
of the company upon the security ot
his own selection, which proved to
bo Inadequate and unmarketable.
"Mr. Fish. befiigunnble to repay
tho loan, or to satisfactorily sceuio

among his friends on tho' board of
directors mid negotiations designed
for tho payment of the Indebtedness
and the protection of tho credit of tho
company, as well as Mr. Fish's rop-
,u tat Ion.
"After it was demonstrated that
Mr. Fish was unable to reimburse
the company a director individually

tcpay the company

'Furthermore. Mr. Fish, who was
a member of the executlvo committee

.deposited a targe amount of money
of the Illinois Central company In
that company after Its ccrdlt was Bcr?
lously Impaired, and nlthough this'
was ultimately collected the process
lequlred several months and dm lug
that time the risk was a cause of
grave anxiety to the directors,
"Moreover, he loaned to the presi
dent of the Trust Company of tho
Hepiiblic, Individually, money of tho
Illinois Central Halli-nad company up
on inadequate security, with tho re
sult that the railroad company was
nimble to collect tho entlro amount
and suffered n loss.
"It Is duo to the officers and direc
tors whose motives and conduct havo
been lmpunged, nnd to the stock
holders, to whom Mr. Fish has ad
dressed an appeal based on hlft
charges, thut these fncts should bo
