Burns, Oregon, May 31, 1918
To The Subscribers to
The Third Liberty Loan,
Through The First National Bank, Burns, Ore.
To those who subscribed to (ho Third Liberty Loan
through our bank, under the Government installment plan,
we wish to make the following explanation and statement
We made requisition in early May to the Federal Re
serve Bank for blank notices and franked envelopes so that
each subscriber might be notified of his next payment, the
amount thereof ana when due.
Such supplies not having been received, we finally
wired, inquiring the delay, and were advised that same hag
I em forwarded the day before and they were finally receiv
ed on May 29th, the day after the installment payments had
to be made.
Believing that every subscriber would wish to make
j?ood his obligation, and not allow his initial payment to he
forfeited, we settled on May 28th the 20 per cent install
ment due from every subscriber, and we trust that each sub
scriber will remit us promptly the amount we advanced at
While this circumstance has made us much additional
work, we appreciate the fact that the Federal authorities
have much to contend with these trying time aand we make
this brief explanation that it may be understood that in not
notifiying subscribers generally we were no way at fault.
