These fig-ures represent the increasing: confidence which a discriminating -investing:
public places in us each succeeding: year. They show the amount of the
funds deposited by us with our banks in the regular course of business.
During: the first three months of 1917 our business represented transactions in
the amount of $324,332.13, and during- the same period for 1920 it was $17,236,
279.04. The conlparison shows that during- January, February and March of 1920,
we did over fifty-three times the volume that was done in the same period for 1917.
Although these figures do not represent actual sales, yet they are indicative
of the unprecedented growth which we have enjoyed during: this three-year period, . '
and show clearly what our contribution has been to the financial stability of city
and state. Figuring- it out from the standpoint of bank clearings adding- the
deposits with the disbursements there would be a total of approximately $34,
000,000 in bank clearings for which we were responsible during- these three months.
To our many friends and clients who have contributed to the establishment of
such an enviable record of growth and leadership we wish to extend our thanks
and appreciation, and express the hope that we may never fail to render a quality
of service equal to that which has given us this honor.
