CIRCULAR NO. 3. 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.
