PRESS OF THOMAS MCGILL & CO.
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1886, by
A. S. PRATT & SONS,
In the Office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington, D. C.
The original Act creating the National banking system bears date February 25th, 1863. This Act was superseded and modified by the Act of June 3d, 1864, which was amended from time to time by various Acts until December, 1873, when all the statutes of the United States were revised and embodied in what are now known as the Revised Statutes of the United States. Such Revised Statutes, therefore, contain all laws relating to National banks except those which have been enacted since December, 1873.
Several of the Acts passed since the latter date are, however, of the utmost importance, as they materially modified the law previously existing.
The following is a compilation of the sections of the Revised Statutes of the United States, containing the laws relating to National banks, to which have been added the Acts having reference to the same passed since December, 1873. Appended to each section will be found references to decisions of the courts, in which the provisions of said section have been commented on or construed.
