RECONCILEMENT OF " F L O A T " ACCOUNT

T o ALL M E M B E R BANKS IN THE SECOND F E D E R A L R E S E R V E DISTRICT,
DEAR SIRS:

I t has been our practice for some time to enclose with our statement of your " R e s e r v e "
account a statement of your "Deferred Availability" or " F l o a t " account, b u t we have asked
you to reconcile only your " R e s e r v e " account.
We believe, however, t h a t both accounts should be reconciled regularly and propose,
beginning with the statement which will be sent to you on June 15, 1919, to reconcile the
" F l o a t " account as well as the " R e s e r v e " account.
For this purpose we have prepared a
reconcilement form on yellow paper (copy of which is enclosed) to distinguish it from the
" R e s e r v e " account form which is white. Copies of both forms will be enclosed with each
semi-monthly statement sent to you.
Will you kindly begin with the statement to be sent on June 15, 1919, to reconcile your
float statement on the proper form, using the float balances shown on your books and on ours
and proving the reconcilement by listing the exceptions under the proper headings in the usual
manner. Will you also have the reconcilement signed by one of your officers and returned in
the auditor's stamped envelope forwarded with the statements.
Inquiries should be addressed to the Auditing Department.
We shall appreciate your cooperation in effecting these frequent reconcilements of both
of your accounts with us.
Yours very truly,




R. H. T R E M A N ,

Deputy

Governor.
