CIRCULAR. AUGUSTA, 1ST OCTOBER, 1830. BELIEVING THAT A GENERAL SYSTEM FOR THE COLLECTION OF MONEY IN THE UPPER COUNTIES OF GEORGIA, WITH A CENTRAL AGENCY IN AUGUSTA, WOULD OFFER GREAT FACILITIES TO THE MERCANTILE COMMUNITY, I HAVE AGREED WITH MANY HIGHLY RESPECTABLE MEMBERS OF THE BAR, RESIDING IN DIFFERENT COUNTIES TO RECEIVE AND SEND TO THEM FOR COLLECTION, NOTES, ACCOUNTS, &C AGAINST PERSONS IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD.

[Augusta: 1830]. Printed broadside, 8" x 9-3/4." Signed in type, "WM. C. MICOU, Attorney at Law. Office at the Corner of Broad and Kollock streets, nearly opposite Wheeler's Building." Toned and lightly foxed, several blank margin chips. Good+.

Micou [1807-1854] was born in Augusta and died in New Orleans. In between his birth and death he graduated from the University of Georgia, was Augusta's Postmaster, practiced law in New Orleans in partnership with Judah Benjamin, was Millard Fillmore's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court upon Benjamin's recommendation, suffered a "brain disease," and died [Find a Grave].
Micou's Circular explains the advantages of his "general system," including "the facility of obtaining legal advice on the steps necessary to be pursued." He lists fifteen persons and firms who will vouch for his "professional standing."
