Translation:At the annual meeting on January 3, it was unanimously decided that the company should live in its own premises, and instructed the management to buy a house or plot and build a house, and for this purpose print an assessment of 10 cents on every $ 100.00 insured, this, together with what is required for filling in the fire fund's reserve fund. The reason why the much-attended annual meeting made this decision was that the current position was to have a room in a back corner of something "big", to be quite reasonable in the act of burning fire, as the company's documents and bucks could be easily enlarged.You are hereby requested to submit to the undersigned your share of policy No. 2861 Total $ 2.50 before March 15, 1905, or also leave it to your agent in your district and receive a hand receipt.
