182-DAY B IL L S for $1,200,000,000, or thereabouts, to be dated Septem ber 11, 1969, and m ature M arch 12, 1970.
T h e bills of both series will be issued on a discount basis under com petitive and noncom petitive bidding as hereinafter

denom inations of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $50,000, $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 (m aturity value).
T enders will be received a t Federal Reserve Banks and Branches up to the closing hour, one-thirty p.m., E astern
D aylight Saving Tim e, Monday, Septem ber 8, 1969. Tenders will not be received a t th e T reasury D epartm ent, Washington. Each
tender m ust be for an even m ultiple of $1,000, and in case of competitive tenders th e price offered m ust be expressed on
th e basis of 100, with not more than three decimals, e.g., 99.925. Fractions m ay not be used. I t is urged th a t tenders be made
on the printed forms and forwarded in th e special envelopes which will be supplied by Federal Reserve Banks or Branches on
application therefor.
Banking institutions generally m ay subm it tenders for account of customers provided the names of tho customers are
set forth in such tenders. Others than banking institutions will not be perm itted to subm it tenders except for their own account.
T enders will be received without deposit from incorporated banka and tru st companies and from responsible and recognized
dealers in investm ent securities. T enders from others mu3t bo accompanied by paym ent of 2 percent of the face am ount of
T reasury bills applied for, unless the tenders are accompanied by an express guaranty of paym ent by a n incorporated bank or
tru st company.
Im m ediately after the closing hour, tenders will be opened a t the Federal R eserve B anks and Branches, following which
public announcem ent will be made by the T reasury D epartm ent of the am ount and price range of accepted bids. Those
subm itting tenders will be advised of th e acceptance or rejection thereof. T h e Secretary of the Treasury expressly reserves the
right to accept or reject any or all tenders, in whole or in part, and his action in any such respect shall be final. Subject to
these reservations, noncompetitive tenders for each issue for $200,000 or less without stated price from any one bidder will be
accepted in full a t the average price (in three decimals) of accepted com petitive bids for the respective issues. Settlem ent for
accepted tenders in accordance with the bids m ust be m ade or completed a t the Federal R eserve B ank on Septem ber 11, 1969,
in cash or other im m ediately available funds or in a like face am ount of T reasury bills m aturing Septem ber 11, 1969. Cash and
exchange tenders will receive equal treatm ent. Cash adjustm ents will be m ade for differences between the p ar value of m atur­
ing bills accepted in exchange and the issue price of the new bills.
T h e income derived from T reasury bills, w hether interest or gain from the sale or other disposition of the bills, does not
have any exemption, as such, and loss from the sale or other disposition of Treasury bills does not have any special treatm ent,
as such, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. T he bills are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other excise taxes, whether
Federal or State, b u t are exem pt from all taxation now or hereafter imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State,
or any of the possessions of th e United States, or by any local taxing authority. For purposes of taxation th e am ount of discount
a t which Treasury bills are originally sold by the U nited States is considered to be interest. Under Section 454 (b ) and
1221 (5 ) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 the am ount of discount a t which bills issued hereunder are sold is not con­
sidered to accrue until such bills are sold, redeem ed or otherwise disposed of, and such bills are excluded from consideration as
capital assets. Accordingly, the owner of Treasury bills (other than life insurance com panies) issued hereunder need include
in his income tax return only the difference between the price paid for such bills, w hether on original issue or on subsequent
purchase, and the am ount actually received either upon sale or redem ption a t m aturity during the taxable year for which the
retu rn is made, as ordinary gain o r loss.
T reasury D epartm ent Circular No. 418 (current revision) and this notice, prescribe th e term s of the T reasury bills and
govern th e conditions of their issue. Copies of th e circular may be obtained from any Federal Reserve B ank or Branch.
In accordance w ith the ab ove announcement, tenders w ill be received a t this b a n k and its branches at El Paso,
Houston an d San Antonio up to tw elve-thirty p.m., Central Daylight Saving Time, M o n d a y September 8, 1969. Tenders

Yours very truly,
