Do not lose sight of the fact that we want
personal and inactive accounts, which receive
3 per cent. on daily balance; but ih to-day's
adverrisement we draw attention to the trust
end of our business. A leading Broad Street
merchant asks us, why we do not call atten?
tion to the frequent unpleasantries which
anse in the settlement of estates by individ?
uals. It is a good suggestion. How often an
indivldual executor or trustee, finds hlmself
between two fires, family feuds, friendships of
long standing broken, etc!
Not so when you appoint this Company your
Executor and Trustee. This is our business-,
we have no axes to grind and no favorites to
play wc simply follow the written directions
of the testator, and our million dollars capital
is a guarantee that all trusts committed to us
will be properly handlcd.
