Good morning Mr. Torres:

I am re-sending the Bealls contract for Inmate Telephone Communication Services. This is the correct contract. The Amendment was inadvertently included in my earlier email which was rescinded by both parties subsequent to January 1, 2017 and has never been in any force or effect.
Accordingly, please destroy the contract sent previously and refer to the attached Agreement.
Best regards,

Marcia L. Smith
