This has brought about a like con-
dition with banks in reserve cities
as well as with the Federal Reserve
"You can not expect a renewal of
this obligation so to make good the
deficit which has been created in
our national financial affairs you
must make good on vour promise.
To do this oti must collect from
the individual who promised to pay
on the maturity of this crop and this
ou must do.
"I fully appieciate the shrinkage
in pi ices and the discontent that it
has caused but that is a matter
over which you have no control.
Your part in this work is to relieve
the situation according to your
promise and the only way you can
tlo so is to collect on your loans."
