Dear Roscoe1;

My earnest advice to you is, consolidate if you can! I had dinner with some New York2 and San Francisco5 bankers sometime ago, and they certainly felt that the outlook is pretty dark6. Things will be much harder before they are better, they agreed. You'll probably lose your bank if you don't tie up with another. I only hope you can put such a deal through.

Hastily W.
