able to refer to "My Bank"
when desiring to establish
character or credit. We are al
ways pleased to have our patrons
assume this proprietary interest
in us, and are always ready to
respond truthfully to inquiries
regarding our customers. It is
not because of patronage that
we do this, but because business
