Grundy, Felix 1777-1840 1832 June 9 letter.

Senator Grundy writes to a fellow Tennessean stating that despite strong speeches in oppostion, it appears likely that the Senate will pass a bill to re-charter the Bank of the United States. If Congress approves the bill, he suspects that it will be vetoed. He feels that the tariff will be reduced somewhat, but not sufficently, by a bill being considered by the House.
