About this work


This volume contains the minutes of meetings of the board of the company, and minutes of AGMs and their local equivalent. Meetings of the board generally took place three or four times a year. Those minutes which appear in Spanish have been contemporarily translated for the benefit of those readers who were not Spanish speaking.

Details of shareholdings and the financial position of the company appear at intervals in the minutes, along with some reports from directors. Meetings also deal with general company administration, Powers of Attorney, and early on with transactions related to the establishment of the company itself. Some salary details are also given.

Some, but not all, of the minutes have been signed. Again, some, but not all, have been endorsed to indicate that they have been reported to the Secretary or Board of the main UK company.

There is an index at the front of the volume.

A copy contract (in Spanish, & not translated) appears on pp. 55-62.

An operational amalgamation of the company's business in Buenos Aires and Patagonia is noted on p. 126.

Dealings regarding back income tax for four years are noted on pp. 167-168.
