3pp., folio. On two loose leaves, each with one torn edge. The blank reverse of the second leaf is addressed in manuscript to 'The Bank of Scotland, | Edinbr', with two postmarks and pencil docketting. The heading is followed by a long list of those present, beginning with 'Mr THOMAS MILLAR, for the Incorporation of Skinners and Furriers' and ending with 'ALEXANDER WRIGHT, Esq. chose Preses'. There follows a minute of the meeting by 'ALEX. WRIGHT', beginning: 'Colonel MACDONALD, after explaining to the Meeting the circumstances which induced Mr DUNSMURE and him to call them together, proposed that a Committee should be appointed to frame a circular to the Creditors, requesting them to be upon their guard not to commit themselves prematurely, or without due inquiry, to approve of Mr. LABOUCHERE's Report'. Wright's statement is followed by one by 'WM. MACDONALD, Convener', beginning: 'The Committee in reference to the prefixed Minute beg to acquaint you, that the Meeting in question was called in consequence of it having come to the knowledge of several gentlemen deeply interested as Creditors, in the affairs of the City, that parties opposed to the general interest of the Creditors were taking active measures to work upon their fears as to their prospect of ultimate payment, with the view of inducing them to accede to the composition proposed by Mr LABOUCHERE.' The third page carries a mandate form, which has not been completed. According to a parliamentary report, 'In January 1836, the Right honourable H. Labouchere, Vice-President of the Board of Trade, visited Edinburgh and Leith, in compliance with the wishes of Lord Melbourne, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, as expressed in their letter to him of 25th September 1835, on the subject of the financial affairs of the city'. Labouchere subsequently produced a report, recommending the restructuring of the 'debt now due on account of the docks at Leith'. No other copy traced. N° de ref. de la librería 14279
