A n Unqualified Denia
A report that is Basely False. To the effect
that the Maxwell Motor Company has joined
in a merger with several other motor car
companies, entailing change in the policies
and management of the company, has been
published in many newspapers throughout
the country. Any foundation for this report
is so utterly lacking, that we can only attri
bute it to the competitors who are trying to
use us as a tool to further their own interests'.
To Maxwell Dealers, To Maxwell Owners
and to the Public
We wish to state that The Maxwell Motor
Company has not joined in any merger, that
no change in ownership has taken place, nor
has there been any change in their personnel
directing its policies.
Furthermore: No such changes in the
Maxwell organization are contemplated.
'We therefore, make an unqualified denial
of the ridiculous rumors of consolidations in
volving the Maxwell name.
