A Personal Word to Depositors in The United States Trust Company Naturally, I would not have bought The United States Trust Company without a very thorough investigation of its affairs. The investigation shows that its assets are well in excess of its liabilities to its depositors. But now that it has come into the hands of The Munsey Trust Company, its strength is increased by the full measure of strength of The Munsey Trust Company over two millions of dollars. So I want to assure you, both personally and as the president of The Munsey Trust Company, and as the owner of The Washington Times, that your mqney in The United States Trust Company is absolutely safe. And, furthermore, I hereby give you my personal, individual guarantee of its safety. I have undertaken the work of straightening out this financial tangle in your interest and in the interest of the city or Washington. In return, I want you to do something for me. I want you to leave your money in The United States Trust Company just where it is, and think no more about it, trusting The Munsey Trust Company and trusting me individually to look after your interests and to make sure the safety of your money. r -''. st''2J -Wjiflr jMe -c-.J&v -. &' V V'.sV! -A.-'! .. r. . ..." r ." - :&" ,i-. ;"-"-'" , ; "IS?
