FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF N E W YORK
6 2 CEDAR STREET

NEW YORK CITY, November 11,

1914.

To THE CASHIER,
OE MEMBER B A N K :
DEAR S I R :

In order that this bank may properly administer all matters pertaining to your account you
are requested to file with us before November 16th, 1914, specimen signatures of the officers of
your bank who are authorized to sign checks for the withdrawal of funds.

For this purpose

signature cards, in duplicate, are enclosed which please complete and return in the addressed
envelope.

Banks using lithographed specimen signatures may furnish their authorized forms

instead of placing the signatures on the cards enclosed.
Will you also kindly furnish us, as soon as convenient, with a certified copy of your ByLaws and a certified copy of resolutions showing the election or appointment of your officers
and enumerating their powers.
The Federal Reserve Board now has under consideration the adoption of a uniform draft
for use by member banks in drawing on their accounts with Federal Reserve banks. Pending the
adoption of such a form and in order that you may be in position to draw against your deposit, a
temporary supply of checks for your immediate use has been prepared and is being forwarded
to you under separate cover.
The use of these checks pending the adoption of uniform draft by the Federal Reserve
Board, will greatly facilitate the work of this office.




Respectfully yours,
B E N J . STRONG, JR.,

Governor.
