TRACING A CASE OF BANK FRAUD AND FORGERY IN ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA, as documented in a file of 34 checks, bank statements, telegrams, and letters, 9 April - 10 September, 1925.

Very good lot. Henry Williams, an African-American using the alias Franklin Johnson, opened an account at the St. Augustine National Bank with a forged check. After writing several small checks around town he closed the account, absconding with the cash. This lot includes the original forged check, the returned cashed checks, "Johnson's" bank statement, and correspondence among bankers, detective agencies, and law enforcement officers in Florida and Asheville, North Carolina, as they searched for the culprit. No indication is given that Williams was ever caught. The group. Item #34570
