A GOOD LETTER
The following letter from Hon.
Fitz Hugh McMaster, Insurance
Commissioner, is greatly apprecia
ted by the officers, stockholders and
policy holders of the first legal re
serve Life Insurance Company ever
organized in South Carolina.
Columbia, S. C.,
May 14, 1913.
Mr. T. O. Lawton, Manager,
Southeastern Life Insurance Co.,
Greenville, S. C.
I had occasion recently to review
in part the progress of insurance
since I nave been Insurance Com
I was struck with the fact that,
when I became Insurance Commis
sioner, the Southeastern Life had
total assets of about $34,000. It
has now assets of abort $380,000,
practically increasing 200 per cent.
in four years.
When I realize that all ol these
assets are invested in South Caro
lina securities and that every dollar
you spend for officers' salaries and
expenses is spent in South Carolina,
I can but real.ze the excellent wojrk
you are doing in South Carolina in
keeping this money in the State
which wo old otherwise go beyond
its borders, part of it never to re
turn. The people of South Caro
lina shoulu appreciate this fact.
(Signed) F. H. McMaster,
(Note: Since the statement to
Insurance department the assets
have increased to $430,000.00.)
