indicating by whom nominated.
There is sent herewith to each bank in Group 1 a ballot for use in voting on the candi­
date for Class A director and to each bank in Group 2 a ballot for use in voting on the
candidate for Class B director. There is also an envelope bearing on its face the certificate
in regard to the vote; also a colored envelope marked “Ballot,” in which the ballot is to

The ballot and certificate on the envelope must be executed by an officer who has been
authorized to cast the vote. A list of the designated voters was attached to my circular
above mentioned. AFTER THE BALLOT HAS BEEN PROPERLY MARKED,
(1) It should be sealed in the colored envelope.

(3) The latter, bearing a properly executed certificate, should be returned to me in
the enclosed self-addressed envelope, so as to reach me not later than the closing
of the polls at 3:00 P. M. on November 16, 1939. At that time the ballot box will
be opened, the votes counted and the results of the election announced. The can­
didates are invited to be present or represented on that occasion.
