185 years ago today - (Fri) Feb 10, 1837

The Mormons, in association with some non-Mormon allies in Geauga county) attempted for a second time to secure a bank charter for the [Kirtland Saftey Society]. A bill was introduced in the Legislature with an amendment granting the [Kirtland Saftey Society] a charter and authorizing its capital stock up to $300,000. This bill was defeated.
