I have in my collection a Registered Mail Book from Carson City, Nevada that dates to 1912 - 1913. One of the signers is the first woman to head a Federal Reserve Facility, Annie Hudnell Martin who was appointed by President Warren G. Harding to head the federal reserve office (Federal assayer's office and formerly the US Mint) in Carson City, Nevada.

Try, try, try again.
If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try, try again."
