"A very small one," said Sir Bryan,
"committed by myself and perhaps he

his Hps began to twitch.
"I see," he said at length. "I meant

This bank is a service institution organized to meet finan
cial necessities of its depositors. The amount of its ser
vice to its dpeositors often depends on the bank balances
This bank must carefully protect the funds deposited
here by its depositors. Money can be loaned only when
we feel sure that it will be safe. When a depositor main
tains a reasonably large, steady balance, it is an indica
tion to us that he knows how to use money successfully.
It gives us a reason to believe that loans to him will be
safe. That is one reason why depositors who maintain
large balances get better service from their bank. They
are entitled to it.
And even more than that, a large balance provides
the depositor with sufficient funds to take care of emer
gencies and business opportunities that may arise.
