United States v. City Bank of Columbus
60 U.S. (19 How.) 385
Where a question was certified from the circuit court to this Court, viz., whether a certain letter, written by the cashier of a bank without the knowledge of the directory, though copied at the time of its date in the letter-book of the bank, was a legal and valid act of authority, and the record afforded no evidence relevant to the acts and authority of the cashier, or to the practice of the bank. In ratifying or rejecting similar acts, this Court cannot answer the question, and the case must be remanded to the circuit court, to be tried in the usual manner..
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
