IMPORTANT!

TO T H E BA N K IN G IN ST IT U T IO N A D D k E S S E D :

You have doubtless observed in the Dallas News of today a call issued
by the undersigned for a special meeting to be held in Dallas next Saturday,
the 7th instant.

The purpose of this meeting is to consider ways and means

to relieve the very serious conditions in the West caused by the protracted
drouth.
On account of the urgency of the matter, and the necessity of provid­
ing immediate relief, I have not had opportunity to write special letters to
the bankers of the district and urge their presence at this meeting.

Yours very truly,

6c#A.
Chairman of the Board.
