Mr. Jesse Sanchez,
"I hope you will enjoy having this first day issue and cover commemorating American Banking.
Our financial institutions and banking system have been -- and yet remain -- a unique and marvelous thing.
The great engines of American industry and commerce still require -- and are very dependent on -- the fuel of credit resources provided by our basnking system.
It has been my privilege to have served on the Banking Committe of the House from the very beginning -- for fifteen amd a half years -- and thereby appreciate its vast importance."
