awnI regulations prescribed by the
Treasurer of the United SinteS for the
redenptimiof mutilated Treasury and
Unlited States notes ar4 r.pplicuble to
the rudemption of mutilated bank notes.
Ths i- a nii.sake. Although a circa.

In order, ho%evcr, to make the mat.
ter pvIrectly clear, and ' to obviate for
the Tuiturepadl necessity for explanatory
lettors, I now , proposo briefly to state
that experien.ee. .,as demonstrated the
iniexpediency, if not the illegaliy, or al
lowitig frnetional valnations of nitilated

omplicates oulr Alcounts to *such a de:
gree as to render the plani impractiehble.
A bank*,bond t redeem it's. notes
on demand.' The. fact thitt a portion of
one of its promissory aotes is torni off or
missing does no" cancel this obligation,
so long as ther.is'no reason to believe
that the missing portions 'of the tie
zqn or will be used to dtfraiid. Section
fifty eight. of the curren0y act will al.
ways justify an.ingtdirv as to the cause
or manner of mutilation.*
If the explaudation is satisractory, the
note should be r.*ddetnevd in full ;' but if
-the inquiry shmoulil le'ad to the belipf that,
fraud was intended, the banligvond be
'justified 'in refusing to redsem it.
-Nothing will justify a deduction''fromi
the race vahte'of a note, except a-fradu.
lenmt intent, and eviderice of' a fraudulent
int.ent wnuld justify the bank in refnsing
to tu;deent the note; t.herefogi, thle nome
should be.redieemed in fnll, or nontt all.
The~ full face value will be allowved
