Burns, Ore... Dee. 20. 1913
To our Friends and Patrons :
The year now drawing to a olose has
been one of the most satisfactory and
suooessful of our oareor. During the
year or 1913 a larger volume of busi
ness was transacted through our Insti
tution than during any previous year in
our history. Within the past sixty days
more new accounts have been opened with
us than In any like period heretofore,
while our books now oontaln a larger
number of depositors than ever before
a silent tribute to the fact mat our
business methods have met with the pub
no's generous approval, and that our
banking policies have proven right un
der the exacting test of time.
During the past year we have In
creased our offloe force, have further
perfeoted, our carefully devised system
of handling the large volume or busi
ness committed to our charge, and have
added the newest and latest office
equipment, so that we are now enabled
to render better and more efficient
service to our patrons than at any time
in the past.
With the approach of the holiday
period we extend to our many friends
the season's greeting. We desire to
thank you for your past patronage, for
the kindly words of commendation that
have brought us new friends and pat
rons. That the New Year may bring you
one and all prosperity and plenty is
our slnoersst wish
With best wishes for a Merry
Christmas and a happy and prosperous
New Year, I am.
