Effective December 17, 1973, the Head Office o f the Federal Reserve Bank o f New

will be able to dial the party you wish to reach in the Bank directly, without switchboard
assistance. Please distribute the new direct-dialing numbers— for major operational mat­
ters on which we receive frequent telephone inquiries— listed on the following pages to
individuals in your institution who may be required to telephone this Bank. I f you should
wish to reach anyone at this Bank whose num ber you do not know, please call 212-791-5000
and record that person's direct-dia lin g num ber f o r fu tu re reference.
Collect calls to this Bank may continue to be made on the same matters for which
this Bank currently accepts such calls. The party with whom you wish to speak, rather
than our switchboard operators, will determine whether the reversal o f the charge is ap­
propriate. A collect call can be made concerning any o f the following matters:
(a ) On a sizeable adjustment to correct an entry on your statement of account or because
a large cash or noncash item or a cash or noncash letter was missent from this Bank or from
its Buffalo Branch.
(b ) When a difference appears on our advice of the charge for a cash letter to a paying bank,
or such cash letter is not received.

Circular No. 10, paragraphs 5 and 6.
(d ) On a request to us to receive, deliver, or transfer securities in accordance with this
Bank’s Operating Circulars No. 14 or 21.

of an examiner of a supervisory authority.
(f) When a member bank calls for advice of its reserve balance on our books.
(g ) When a member or nonmember bank calls for amounts of cash letter charges to its re­
serve account or correspondent bank’s reserve account.
(h ) When a payor bank calls to give advice of nonpayment of a cash item of $1,000 or over
as provided in paragraphs 17 and 18 of our Operating Circular No. 6.
