Good Faith

Across the face of every policy we issue is the

unwritten endorsement--Good Faith.


Good Faith is the most precious element in all

human association, the priceless foundation of

every worthy business.


Without Good Faith, the clearest contract is but

a scrap of paper: with it, a scrap of paper be-

comes a bond.


Good Faith makes Individuals honorable, Cor-

porations generous, Nations great.


To be just is not enough--Good Faith is better

than its word, standing behind the spirit as well

as the letter of its agreements.


Insurance based only on the written contract

gives literally what is paid for--a minimum.


Insurance written and interpreted in Good Faith

gives more than is bargained for--generous and

understanding treatment.


Behind the policy of a corporation stand the

men who direct its destiny. When the guiding

principle of these men is Good Faith, the cor-

poration becomes an instrument of human

betterment.


The corporation whose policy is Good Faith

gives the lie to the saying that corporations have

no souls.


BEHIND EVERY METROPOLITAN POLICY

STANDS THE MASTER POLICY--GOOD

FAITH.

J. SCOFIELD ROWE, President.

A Sound and Fair Basis

for writing

Check Alteration and Forgery

Insurance


The recognition of preperred risks has

become a fundamental principle in the

writing of all forms of insurance. Users

of loss-preventive measures are entitled

to discounts in proportion to the degree

of prevention they employ.


The Metropolitan Casualty Insurance Co.

accordingly offers to users of approved

preventive devices, regardless of make, a

graduated scale of discounts from base

rates for Check Alteration and Forgery

Insurance.


Discounts are Substantial

depending upon the effectiveness of the

devices used.


The Metropolitan was the FIRST Com-

pany to give its Preferred Risks these

discounts. The plan, introduced in 1924,

has demonstrated its right to careful

consideration on the part of check

users everywhere and has been accorded

universal approval.

The Metropolitan Casualty

Insurance Company of New York

Blanket Fidelity Insurance

for

Mercantile and Industrial

Companies

This new advanced form of insurance

was inaugurated by The Metropolitan

Casualty Insurance Company in 1925 and

has the following advantages:


1. All employees are covered at

inception of policy.

2. New employees are covered from

moment of employment.

3. Change Notices" are no longer

required.

4. Inadvertent omissions are no

longer possible.

All employees are bonded all the time.


This broad coverage is based upon the

Company's Flexible Rating Plan, which

recognizes the varying conditions of mod-

ern business--never before considered.


The universal adoption of a convenient

Flexible Rating Plan similar to that

inaugurated by The Metropolitan in 1925

tells its own story."

Metro-Surance

INSURANCE is foresight and prudence applied

to the uncertainties of human life.

METRO-SURANCE is super-insurance from

which all uncertainties have been eliminated.

METRO-SURANCE affords the maximum of

protection against the carelessness of humanity,

the accidents of activity, the catastrophes of

nature by the enlightened "Good Faith" of

its dealings.

Insurance against casulaties marks a long up-

ward step in man's rise from savagery to civil-

ization.

METRO-SURANCE is insurance raised to new

levels of service, security and foresightedness.

Insurance, man's collective effort toward

warding off the blows of fate, is the best

friend of the helpless child, of the defense-

less woman - and of the strong man in his

hour of need.

METRO-SURANCE believes in "paying with a

smile"--its contracts are the clearest that words

can devise--then it writes "Good Faith" across

the face of every policy.

Insurance, the co-operative modern method of

mitigating misfortune, is based on the certainty

that prompt aid with be vitally needed at some

time in every man's life.

METRO-SURANCE believes that in emergencies

"he gives twice who gives quickly," and places

its reputation for "Good Faith" high above any

narrow technical interpretation of its policies.

METRO-SURANCE, by its unfaltering adherence

to the principle of dealing with its public in

"Good Faith", has acquired and holds the great-

est of all insurance assets, an army of satisfied

Policy Holders.
