Thank you, Julie. This was most helpful given that the customary rendering would not have made sense; I was wondering if I was missing some special usage. I can only assume that the author lifted the text from draft notes for a speech and didn't edit them for purposes of correspondence. In the end, I wrote around the problem using a solution very similar to the one you offered and flagging the text for the client. Thanks everyone else for your input! Your suggestions for the customary meaning should be entered into the open glossary. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
I agree that there is something incoherent here. This is standard for indicating that something is about to be read out loud, depending on context "out loud" can be either understood or stated, but that is te very sense of it. Odd indeed to imagine that
The text is not clear about the tense. Up until this point, this appears to be a letter containing the agenda and summary financial results. Beyond ths point, the sentence continues, "... et me tiens à votre entière disposition pour tous renseignements complémentaires que vous souhaiteriez obtenir. LE GERANT." Then follows the text of the resolutions. It seems as though the manager lifted text from notes for his spoken remarks and put it on letterhead over his signature, failing to modify the wording as necessary.
