The Harriman National Bank regards the good
will of the community as its most valuable asset,
and, therefore, bends its efforts toward keeping old
friends and making new ones.
To this end, while extending a general invitation
to responsible corporations, firms and individuals
to do business with the bank, it does not mislead
them with promises today which tomorrow it may
be unwilling to fulfill, and it makes no promises of
any kind, at any time, which it has not the ability
to perform.
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.
The friends of the Harriman National Bank
number more than its depositors, and we fully
acknowledge our indebtedness to them for their
share in the splendid growth of the bank.
