Suit to Enjoin Sale of bonds

LISTEN TO MR. EDNER
Just a line to the people of El Dorado county to let them know I am back from my trip through Oregon and Washington where I distributed literature of my own and of the Chamber of Commerce. I saw many beautiful places but nothing that looked as good to me as El Dorado county. We traveled 2,500 miles, my car is a 4-door Ford sedan and Nick Fox’s is an 8-cylinder Peerless; the Ford made 20 miles to the gallon of gas and we ate supper every night at the same table with the Foxes. We traveled as high as 250 miles in one day. Nick visited his folks in Portland and I visited my nephew in Astoria. We camped one night in a beautiful park with many other campers and there were some pet bears there. After everything was quiet, a bear put his head in my tent door and made a great noise, my wife sat up in bed and made a great noise too, and then ran out of the side of the tent! I thought I would stay in bed but when my wife got out of bed, the bear started to get in bed and I gave him the whole tent, didn’t even stop to see if he was webfooted I heard a lady holler ‘Get up quick, John, he is running away with our ham’ I had often heard it said that it pays to advertise, but I believe it pays to snore as the bear never went into Nick Fox’s tent.
