righ t to obtain from each m em ber bank, which availed itself o f the privileges covered
by the perm it, such inform ation as the Board m ight require in connection with the rela­
tionships authorized b y said perm it.
I f your bank has availed itself o f the privileges authorized by this perm it, you are
hereby requested to furnish me prom ptly with the follow ing detailed inform ation regard­

account.
The above inform ation is also required in the event you have participated in any
syndicate operation involving a dealer in securities who has been acting as your cor­
respondent under the perm it referred to above.
Y ours very truly,

Federal Reserve A gent
