Federal Reserve Bank

Dallas, Texas, March 14, 1952

To the Member and Nonmember Clearing Banks
in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District:

Our current Operating Bulletin No. 5, relating to currency and coin
shipments, provides that shipments of currency of one dollar and two
dollar denominations, in amounts exceeding $500, should be forwarded to
us by express.
In view of a recent increase in express rates involving intrastate ship­
ments in Texas, it is requested that all shipments of currency to this bank
and its branches at El Paso, Houston, and San Antonio, regardless of
denomination or amount, be forwarded by registered mail hereafter. Ship­
ments of coin of all denominations should continue to be made by express
from points where express facilities are available.
A similar request was made of our member banks in Arizona, Louisi­
ana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma on September 29, 1949, following an
increase in rates on interstate shipments.
Your cooperation in this respect will be appreciated.
