Th e First N ational B a n k of B o s t o n B o s t o n 6, M a s s a c h u s e t t s February 25, 19^6 Mr. Elliott Thurston Assistant to the Chairman Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System Washington, D. C. Dear Mr. Thurston: To be on the safe side and in an effort to be helpful, I have engaged a single room in the Hotel Astor, Times Square, Kew York, for Mr. Eccles for Saturday, April 6, the date he is going to address the Graduate School of Banking alumni group. Will you kindly let me know at your convenience if Mr. Eccl98 would like to have us retain this reservation, or would he prefer to arrange his own accommodations elsewhere. We have definitely established our meeting place to te the Building Trades? Employers Association club rooms, 2 Park Avenue, New York City, (at 33 Street). This is a central location and provides us with facilities for holding four separate meetings on the afternoon of the sixth proceeding the dinner. Although an initial announcement of the meeting appeared in this morning's issue of the "American Banker", we did not men-* tion that Mr. Eccles will be our guest speaker. That news will be put out sometime around the middle of March, at which time we shall send you a copy of the announcement for your files. It was a pleasure to make your acquaintance in Washington. Sincerely yours Loan Officer March 1, 1946. Mr. E. Morton Jennings, Jr., Loan Officer, The First National Bank of Boston, Boston 6, Massachusetts. Dear Mr. Jennings: This is to tnank you for your letter of February 25 and to say that Mr. Eccles plans to be in New York as scheduled for this meeting. I will let , you know as soon as possible about accommodations, but in the meanwhile let me thank you on his behalf for your thoughtfulness in reserving a single room at the Hotel astor. Is the dinner to be held in the Building Trades Employers Association club rooms? My impression from talking with yoij was that it was to be held at one of the hotels. I would not have supposed that the club rooms Qffered sufficient space. At such time as you make a further announce ment, I would appreciate it if you would sdnd us a copy. Sincerely yours, Elliott Thurston, assistant to the Chairman. ET:b
