Please notify member banks of Dallas Federal Reserve District that as Chairman of a sub­
committee of the Banking and Currency Committee of the United States Senate I shall go to Dallas
immediately upon adjournment of convention at Houston to receive any documentary evidence or

maladministration against the Governor or Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank a t
Dallas. Have it distinctly understood that there will be no repetition of the testimony given before
the Board of Directors of the Dallas bank only new and additional testimony will be received as
