Circular No. 7.
Series of 1930.

FE D E R A L R E SE R V E B A N K
OF DALLAS

August 27,1930.
Effective September 1,1930.

TRANSIT OPERATIONS
TIME SCHEDULES OF AVAILABILITY

To the Member Bank Addressed:
For your guidance in forwarding items for credit, under the terms of our cur­
rent circular on Transit Operations, there will be found on the following pages time
schedules of availability accorded items received at the Federal Reserve Bank of
Dallas and its El Paso, Houston and San Antonio branches. Credit and availability
are in each instance, subject to the receipt of actual payment, as specified in our
current circular on Transit Operations, Collection of Cash Items. The date upon
which credit is given under this schedule shall have no application to the date upon
which notice of non-payment, lack of returns, etc., shall be given. The time for giv­
ing such notices shall be based entirely upon the time when remittances should
have been received, making due allowance for delays. These schedules supersede all
previous schedules and are subject to change without notice.
In order to expedite the forwarding of checks and to obtain prompt credit, mem­
ber banks are requested to sort and list checks in separate letters in accordance
with the divisions of these schedules. A notation should be placed on each letter,
plainly indicating when the items included are expected to be available as reserve,
such as “ immediate credit,” “ one day,” “ two days,” etc. Items payable in this
district will be deferred on a business day basis, i. e., exclusive of Sundays and
holidays. Items payable in other districts will be deferred on a calendar day basis
insofar as it concerns the transit time to other Federal reserve bank and branch
cities. For instance, items of two-day availability payable in this district received
by us Saturday will be credited Tuesday, whereas items of two day availability pay­
able in other districts and listed in separate letters will be credited Monday. In any
case when date of availability falls on Sunday or a legal holiday credit will be given
the next business day.
Should a cash letter contain checks not sorted according to the time taken for
collection, as shown by these schedules, credit for the total of the letter may be
deferred, at our discretion, for a period sufficient to collect items of longest avail­
ability contained therein.
Checks drawn on banks not located in a Federal reserve city, but bearing upon
their face a notation that they are payable at or receivable for immediate availability
in a Federal reserve city, will be accepted on the same basis as checks drawn on
banks located in that city.
Yours very truly,

Governor.
