On May 8th, 1799, the Committee of By-Laws reported "that they had devised a common seal for the Corporation, the description of which is as follows:"Oceanus, one of the sea Gods, sitting in a reclining posture on a rising ground pouring water from an urn which forms a river and terminates in a lake. On the exergue will be inscribed 'Seal of the Manhattan Company.'"There are nine banks now in existence whose history reaches back into the Eighteenth Century. Of these, two are in Massachusetts, two in Connecticut, one in Pennsylvania, one in Delaware, one in Maryland and two in New York.Corporate banking in New York began with the organization of the Bank of New York by Alexander Hamilton in 1784, which received its charter in 1792. For fifteen years this bank, together with the New York branch of the first Bank of the United States, were the only banks doing business in either the City or State of New York. With Hamilton and the Federals in control of the Legislature, new bank charters were unobtainable. This monopoly of banking facilities in the City and State was of great strategic value to the political party in control, and naturally aroused jealousy and resentment among the members of the opposition, whose leader was Aaron Burr........

Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III MANAGING, AND LITTLE LEAKS CHAPTER III MANAGING, AND LITTLE LEAKS Managing is the art and science of using to the best advantage what has been brought into the house. There is no part of the household economy where it is not called upon, no part which is not the better for what New England means when it says of a housekeeper : " She has faculty." Solomon knew her in his time and she to-day is the woman who " looketh well to the ways of her household." It is interesting to notice how like the twentieth- century manager is to this old-time woman in essentials, though conditions have changed so greatly. Read the last chapter of Proverbs and learn what she was and -is. Managing means the charge of waste as well as the first use of everything.
