To Battalion Chiefs,
General Order No. 11 requiring members to procure bells and relays at their own expense has been lost sight of since the earthquake, this is more necessary now than ever, because the companies are running with only seven men on duty. You are therefore instructed to notify the Captains of companies in your charge to direct the members of their respective companies to secure bells immediately, and to send a list of such members with their eating places to this office.
