2Governor Duncan reported that the State Bank of Illinois on July 7 had entered on its books, as required per the first section of the act, the acceptance of its board of directors to the increase in stock. No communication had yet come from the Bank of Illinois as to its acceptance or rejection of the provisions of the act.

The Bank of Illinois accepted later in 1837.
