Dear Mr. Holloway:
I have just had the pleasure of looking over , a condensed state-
ment of your bank as made to the Comptroller of the Currency at
the close of business December 31, 1921, and want to take this oppor-
tunity of extending my congratulations to you and to your associates
on the excellent showing made.
"From that statement it is evident to us that your bank has, even
during these abnormal tin\es, been conducted along aound and con-
servative lines. Withholding the granting of loans for speculative or
unnecessary purposes, thereby conserving your resources, has enabled
you to take proper cafe of the needs of your producing citizenship
without over-extending your bank. This is in accord with the advice,
which the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas has been giving to its mem-
ber banks by circular, by letter and through the press for more than
three years, and we are pleased to note that yours is one of the
banks which has profited thereby.
With best wishes for your continued success and with warm per-
sonal regards, I am, - s
«* Yours very sincerely,
R. L. VAN ZANDT,
We, the undersigned Board of Directors of the above mentioned
Bank, are glad to present to the public this showing at the close of

We take this opportunity to thank our customers, both large and

very best service in accord with sound banking principles.
We also take this opportunity to solicit new accounts, which shall
have our best service.

COLUMBUS WAS BORN IN
PORTUGAL, IS CLAIM
Lisbon, Jan. 14.—Christopher Co-
lumbus, discovered of America, was
born in Portugal, the Portuguese
Academy of Science was told yester-
day by Patrocfnio Ribeira, a member.
It has been a historically accept-
ed fact that Columbus was born at
Genoa, Italy. The statement of Sen-
hor Ribeira comes on .the heels of an
announcement by Rt. Rev. Mgr. Rey
Soto upon his arrival in New York re-
cently that Columbus was a Jew. The
prelate said that this was proved by
documents discovered at the home of
ancestors of Columbus in Spain. He
said Columbus hid the fact that he
was a Jew because' of the deportation
of people of that faith from Spain by
Ferdinand and Isabella. •
