Yes, the owners of the Mechanics Savings Bank, representing approximately three hundred
individuals, the depositors, representing about three thousand, not includmg the holders of
Christmas Savings Club Cards, the white and colored people of this city, who are vitally inter
ested in retaining the confidence of the colored people of this community and the good opinion of
the white and colored people of the United States, are waiting.
They all want to know the approximate amount of the assets to re-open the Mechanics
Savings Bank. The amount is stated in the following extract from the decree signed by the able
Judge of the Richmond Chancery Court-, ^ X
.... * 'And it being represented to the Court that the closing of
said bank by the plaintiff was because of the presence in its
assets of obligations of the Bonded Realty Company, Inc*,
amounting to the sum of $83,500>00, which are not secured to
the satisfaction of the plaintiff and it being further repre
sented to the Court that there is a reasonable prospect of the
defendant being able, within a short time, of satisfying the
plaintiff as to said obligations of the Bonded Realty Company,
Inc., and as to the entire solvency of said bank, it is fur
ther ordered that said receivers he authorized and instructed
to report to the Court, at the earliest possible date, togeth
er with a statement of the assets and liabilities of said -
bank, such offers and plans as may be submitted to them by the
defendants, or others on its behalf, with a view of satisfying
the requirements of the plaintiff and effecting a prompt dis
charge of said receivers, and the return of the assets of said
Mechanics* Savings Bank, of Richmond, Va. to its proper
But how much more is needed? The Receivers assert that they cannot determine this
amount until all the pass-treks of the liters have been turned in and balanced. To meet
this condition the depositors, m meeting assembled, by unanimous vote, decided to share in any
liability in excess of the amount already ascertained. This relieves the situation and enables the
Receivers to strike a balance and submit the same to the Court with such a recommendation as
may, in their judgment be fair to the people whom they represent.
This then will necessarily end the delay as the Receiver* have been unofficially reported to
be in favor of re-opening the Bank and willing to do all in their power to help the colored people
of this community. The issue is plant. Personal feeling and animosities should not figure in this
matter. Let us re-open the Mechanics Savings Bank in order that those depositors who are ur
gently in need of some of their money may be able to get it and those who wish to deposit their
savings may be permitted so to do. The depositors stand pledged uot to make any run on the Bank
Other issues and conditions can be met as they are presented The primary purpose at this
time is to do business again. Let us ascertain the approximate amount of liability, put up the
assets necessary and with the aid and support of the good white people and the self-sacrificing
colored ones, backed by an abiding faith in the Almighty God, let us re-open the Bank.
