The matter of the location of this Reserve Bank has
been discussed at meetings of this Club and while if it
were possible to secure such an institution for Indianapoli
we would be heartily for it, second it is a general wis
here to have this institution located in Chicago.
Yours very truly,

Secretary.

RUSHVILLE, INDIANA
31st of January, 1914.

Mr, Lon H. Lewis, Secretary,
Chamber of Commerce,
Indianapolis, Ind.
Dear Sir:Replying to your letter of the t hirtieth
will say that the business done through the banks
of this city indicate that Indianapolis would be
t he place preferred for the federal reserve bank,
while personally they would have no preference
just so that the money would be forthcoming when
they wanted it - it would be a question among the
-bankers as to the locat ion of this reserve fund.
Indianapolis does 66$ of t he Rushville
banking business, Cincinnati 25$, Chicago 9$, while
Louisville and Saint Louis really does none at all
with Rushville.
Indianapolis does the bulk of the whole­
sale business in Rushville with the exception, of
special lines which, of course, must be purchased
at their respective cities----but- staple articles
are mostly purchased in your city and nat urally

we would lock to Indianapolis as "our" main bus­
iness center where would would expect to do any
and all kinds of business----and would look there
for any loans as in this case of federal reserve
banks.
Hardly knew just what you expected in
t his letter and trust that I have given the
desired information--- if not, will be glad to
give you any other data if it is in my power to
get hold o f .
By the way, we are organizing a Chamber
of Commerce now on broader lines and expect to
have a good one with a paid secretary that will
do t hings.
