It is this teller who receives the deposits. On page 92 appears a brief description of the depositor's pass-book. When making a deposit the depositor fills out a printed blank, upon which he writes his name and a description of items making up his deposit, thus":

This " Deposit Slip," with the funds to be deposited and the depositor's pass-book, are handed to the receiving teller. The bills are counted and the items examined and checked off by the teller, who charges the bank in the depositor's pass-book with the full amount of the deposit, and files the slip ready for the bookkeeper. These slips are the bank's vouchers for the transaction.
