Dear Mr. Beyer:

On August 23 we received Bank cablegram No. 12 in such a badly garbled
condition that

Mr. Strong instructed me

on the name day,

to have it repeated.

I did this

and, at the demand of the French telegraph office, paid

them /7, francs in advance to cover the cost of repetition by the Bank.

On

reaching London Mr. Strong received this cable, embodied in Bank cablegram
16.

What I want to be sure of is that the Cable Company has not made

'"Cef

a duplicate charge for the repetition., or that it has given the Bank due

credit for the 17, francs which I paid them in advance for the repetition.
I was sorry

to

learn of your illness, and um very glad to know that the

operation was successful and

29, 1919)

As I am asking Mr. Case to use my room during my absence, I would like
to have my personal belongings packed away so that they will not interfere
with his free use of the room.

puring my absence I wish a careful survey could be made of all personal
papers and belongings of mine in the Bank and those which are not strictly
current or needed for ready reference I think should be set one side and
possibly put into boxes to go into storage, suitably marked.

It might be

well to get them all together and let me know what they consist of before
having them permanently packed and stored.

Mr. Benedict

He was informed by Mr. ailbert that you knew just what transpired regarding the Austrian matter, and that in case he should wish to seek further

Mr. Benedict stated that his only object

in coming in with the letter was to inform you what Mr. Vaaderlip had written
and also, should the representatives come to America, for him to be in a
position to have them introduced to those who would be in a position to
discuss the Austrian situation.

Dear ,Governor Strong:

The attached is an extra copy of your letter to
Senator Glass which I thought you would like to have, although
you requested Mr. Jay to send you a copy.

I had Miss McCarrick

copy your draft of the letter and also a copy of Mr. Davis's letter
and gave all the papers to Mr. Jay as you requested. Miss Holmes

informs me that Mr. Jay still has your letter on his desk. He is
away from the bank,until Monday but Miss Holmes tells me that he

will give it his attention the first,1uing on his return.
Yours s ncerely,

Dear Mr. Strong:

Your letter of the 20th, together with three under
date of the 22nd formed part of a large and varied assortment
of mail awaiting me this morning (I did not come in Saturday),

and while it was not lack of work which caused me to wire you,
I was glad to see the visible evidences of your recovery.

Fol-

lowing your example, I answer seriatum:

Of course I knew all about the notes

French Notes:

which were sent to the Park from the City Bank as I "did them
up", addressed the box to Mr. Curtis, took it to the postoffice
and registered it myself.

But the preceding negotiations were

handled personally and verbally to a large extent by you and I
did not know that this was the lot sent by Yr. Peixotto and Mr.
Curtis was extremely hazy on the subject when I inquired of him.
However, I think you -have "all that is coming to you" now

in

this direction,at any rate,and we can dismiss this as a subject
of correspondence.
Income Tax:

In view of the nature of the replies

which you have made on the back of the report, you would only
be permitted to claim $1,000 exemption and this will be done and
the report sent in after I have made a copy which will be filed
with your personal matters here.

Mr. Strong.

2/26/17.

Your Expenses:

I mentioned this matter with particular
to Mr. Hendricks
reference to Miss Carleton's salary one day recently,and he took
it up with Jr. Sailer who asked me to have you send in a statement of not only Miss Carleton's salary, but all expenses for stationery, sta.:p

,

etc. as without question this was all bank ex-

pense and it was proper that it should be taken care of by the
bank, the fact that it had not been brought up before being simply
an oversight.
Outgoing Mail:

Be fair and acknowledge that your criti-

cism of this department is due to prejudice.

Not only is no one

aware of its having been in had shape since those young boys were
taken off the work, but a recent report from our efficiency expert
on this department was most satisfactory.

The Weekly Report of

last Saturday applies principally to the incoming mail.

Of course

the "expert" suggested some changes, or additions rather, which
may add to the efficiency of the department, but there was no criticism of it as handled at present.
And while it may seem inappropriate here and certainly is a
rash thing to do, I respectfully suggest that you freshen up a bit
on biblical lore.

At least, it has always been my understanding

that it was the child and not the rod which was in danger of spoiling.

Of course, a bomb proof is the only safe place for me after

the last two paragraphs, but you know I don't hold life as a very
precious thing.
Boy's Camp:

It was awfully good of you to send such a

generous check and I can't tell you how much pleasure it gave me
to be able to make out another check payable to the Director of the

Dear Governor Strong:

We who were the recipients of your kind words and cordial
handshakes want to tell you that they are appreciated.
In a large institution of this kind it is often difficult,
if not impossible, for the men of the ranks to come in personal contact with the official staff and an occasion such as that which we
experienced Last evening at Aeolian Hall brings out in clear relief
the character and the sympathetic human side of the man who is our
leader.

All of us agree that while formerly we prided ourselves
with being loyal members of the staff, of this bank still that feeling of pride was not nearly 30 pronounced as it is to-day. The occasion of your visit to our Commencement will long rauain with us
and serve as an added inspiration to greater things. We have been
told by of
of the hew York Chapter that this same thought was
expressed by officers and anployes of many banks which were also
represented there.
Permit us, Governor Strong, to wish you huge and continuing success. We hope you will hold the reins for many years to come.

BANK OF NEW YORK

Date April 28, 1916.

Mr. Strong

From

FEDERAL RESERVE

H. V. Cann.

Subject:

, Gold.

Agreement that our credit balance in London shall always be available in gold at a fixed price, say 77/9 per

English

standard ounce (9.16 2/3

fine)31.10349552 grammes) and no extra charge for bars.
It would seem desirable to have a definite limit to the amount of
a balance that may be callable

in

gold.

When gold is earmarked, the custodian might account for it by
weight only;

for so many English standard ounces.

The value could be entered in our accounts at the New York assay
office price for the English standard ounce, namely, 418.945736.

(Query,

in entering the value should allowance be made at an arbitrary rate to
cover the possible cost of importing the metal?

I think not.)

The Bank of England has no fixed buying price for foreign coins.
Its nominal quotations for Napoleons is 76/3 1/2 per ounce weight.

The Bank of France buys bar gold at Fs. 3437 per kilo fine (1,000
grammes) and its fixed price for coin 9/10 fine is Fs. 3093.30 per kilo.
When this bank undertakes a reciprocal custody of gold it might

agree to always be ready to deliverin gold of American standard fineness
(i.e., 900 fine,at the assay office price, namely, 418.604651, and varying
from that to bars 1000 fine at price 420.67183 plus extra charge of
thousand dollars for the bars),the balance

5(4

per

at, credit on our books subject

to a definite limit.

In the normal future it is probable that gold settlements will run
against the United States and that, under the contemplated arrangement, this
bank would have custody of more gold than London and for some years perhaps

would have to bear the greater expense for handling,unless a fee is allowed

Mr. Calvin Smith,
Federal Reserve Bank,
33 Liberty Street, New York.
My dear Mr. Smith:

You will recall that before I left New York I suggested the possibility of Governor Strong's party returning
separately.
This is to advise you that Dr. Walter W. Stewart of
the Federal Reserve Board is returning on the Leviathan, sailing
August 25 and arriving August 31.
Anything that you can do to facilitate hie arrival
will be very greatly appreciated, both by him and by Governor
Strong.

Governor Strong, and his daughter, Mrs. Humphrey,
.111 return early in September.
I shall let.yob know later
the exact date.
But this is just to ask once again if you
car. get Mr. Stuart at the Customs to have the Governor oaesed
through without the delay necessary to customs inspections, etc.
Governor Strong will declare and pay duty on everything he brings
in, and I believe if Mr. .Stuart is asked he will assign a special
inspector who will expedite matters.
Despite all the effcrte
which have been made on previous tripe, Governor Strong says he
has always had ccnsiderable bother, and if you are able this time

ti obviate that, it




will be very much appreciate.

Thanking you for the assistance to Dr. Stewart, I am,
Very truly yours,

Secretary to the Governor.

London, England,
August 31, 1925.

My dear Mr. Smith:
Governor Strong.has again asked me to make very
'

1161

certain that there will be no difficulty about his getting
through the customs on arrival in New York. And he suggests
that you get Ir. Stuart to assign both an appraiser and an

inspector, and that you accompany them to the pier to avoid
delays.
He will arrange to have everything in one trunk and
will see that as many of the bills as possible are available
for the appraiser.
I an assuring him that you will make

every effort to have his entry as little delayed as possible.

It is now definitely arranged that Governor Strong
will return on the Olympic, which sails September 9. Will you
be good enough, also, to have customs passes sent to the
following:
Mx. Ernest Kendall (Mr. Strong's valet whom he
wishes to have meet him)
and
Mr. Philip Strong
both at 270 Park Avenue. And to Mr. Benj. Strong Jr., for
himself and Mrs. Strong. His pass can be sent to him at the
International Acceptance Bank.
Please accept.my thanks in advance for the assistance.
I regret the need of botering you, but it seems the most feasible
way from this distance.
Very truly yours,
Secretary to the Governor.
