on this 13th day of February, 1908, before me James Mason, a Notary Public in and for the City and County of San Francisco, State of California, personally came George E. Crothers, to me known and known to me to be the Secretary of The Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University, a body corporate under the laws of the State of California, who, being by me first duly sworn, did depose and say that he resides at the City and County of San Francisco, State of California; that he is the Secretary of The Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University, the body corporate named in the attached certificate; that said body corporate has as yet adopted no seal and that for that reason no seal is affixed to the foregoing instrument; that by authority of said Board he signed the said certificate; that the said Charles G. Lathrop who executed the foregoing instrument as Treasurer of the said body corporate is the Treasurer thereof and signed said instrument by authority of its Board of Trustees.

And, further, I have seen the original minutes of the meeting of the Board of Trustees of said body corporate held on the 7th day of February, 1908, and have compared the copy of the Resolutions set forth in the annexed certificate of George E. Crothers as Secretary of said body corporate, with the original on the books of said body corporate and that it is a true and correct transcript from the same.
