J. I. Cohen Jnr. & Brothers of Baltimore first write on 29 August 1834, having been recommended to NMR by a brother, Mendes I. Cohen. They soon report that they have had an interview with John Forsyth of the Department of State, regarding the transfer of the agency of Banker to the United States Government in Europe from Barings to NMR. The early letters also report on the development of the United States in general and Maryland in particular, reporting often about presidential pronouncements regarding the Bank of the United States. The general routine business of the agency is of course featured.
