Earnest of this principle of the Harriman Na tional Bank is given in the personnel of its directo rate. composed of bankers, merchants, railroad men, and representatives of other important interests, whose responsibility, standing and reputation in the community are guarantee of the faithful per formance of their duties as directors of the bank, as well as of their knowledge of the needs of customers. We believe that the good opinion of the com munity and neighborly feeling for the bank are worth having. We desire our neighbors to be our friends, so that even if we cannot do business with them, either for reasons on their part or reasons on our own, nevertheless we may profit by their report of us.
