Description

    New Salem, OH- Jefferson Bank $3 Mar. 1, 1817
    This bank was only in business from 1817-18. Several lawsuits followed its demise, and during a July 1818 trial, the prosecutor, David Redick, attacked the bank's president, Dr. George W. Duffield. Dr. Duffield in self-defense stabbed Mr. Redick to death with a doctor's lance. The doctor was later tried for murder, but was acquitted. Dr. Duffield signed this note. The vignette is of Commodore Oliver Perry transferring his flag from the USS Lawrence to the USS Niagara at the Battle of Lake Erie on September 10, 1813. It was fortunate that the Lawrence still possessed a rowboat that would float and that Perry was not hit during the British onslaught. Fine.
