1. A state may constitutionally lay a stamp tax in respect of the making of promissory notes within her borders. So held where the notes were made by a domestic corporation and sent to payee banks in other states under an arrangement whereby notes, when received and accepted, were to be placed to the maker's credit, the maker being at liberty, however, to withdraw and revoke any note until it had been so received and credited by the payee.

44 F.2d 64 affirmed.
