Central Calif. Telephone Herald Co.
Shareholders in this Company have been notified of a proposal to unite with a new Company, and requested to send their proxy to Sacramento. Instead of sending proxies to people we do not know, it is agreed that the proxies from this county should be sent to George Rieber, County Assessor, who will take measures to see that our interests are properly protected. Send them in at once.
