FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF D A LL A S Dallas, Texas, December 28, 1929. To the Member Bank Addressed: With the approach of the new year, and in the nature of a helpful suggestion, this circular is being sent to member banks as a reminder of the very common mistake of misdating notes as of the preceding year. This bank’s interest in the matter arises from a desire to save its member banks the annoyance caused by the return of paper offered it for rediscount or as collateral for the reason that it is past due on its face as drawn, whereas otherwise it would be acceptable. We hope this suggestion will be accepted in the same spirit in which it is offered and that the necessity of returning paper on account of erron eous dating may be reduced to the minimum. Yours very truly, Governor. This publication was digitized and made available by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas' Historical Library (FedHistory@dal.frb.org)
