to obtain the assent of the electors of
the Borough for that purpose, and
thought it wise to call your attention
to the fact that the outstanding bonds
of the Borough are not redeemable at
this time.
The first issne of bonds was made
‘and dated the first day of February
1895, and are redeemable on the first
day of February 1805, same bearing
