It should be noted that on page 5 of the prospectus it states: Thomas Wiling, the President of the Bank of the United States, John Nixon, the President of the Bank of North America and John Barclay, the President of the Bank of Pennsylvania held title to the land in the N.A.L.C. as the company trustee’s. They (Willing, Nixon and Barclay) refused to serve as trustees because of a possible conflict of interest with their bank positions and because they thought they might be held liable if the company failed. Jared Ingersoll, the Attorney General of Pennsylvania, Frederick A. Muhlenburg, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and Mathew Clarkson the Mayor of Philadelphia replaced them.
