(e) The Trustee may require such additional proof of any matter referred to in this Section as it shall deem necessary.
SECTION 1.06. Notices, etc., to Trustee or Company. Any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent, waiver or Act of Holders or other document provided or permitted by this Indenture to be made upon, given or furnished to, or filed with:
(i) the Trustee by any Holder or by the Company shall be sufficient for every purpose hereunder if made, given, furnished or filed in writing to or with the Trustee at the Principal Corporate Trust Office, or
(ii) the Company by the Trustee or by any Holder shall be sufficient for every purpose hereunder (except as provided in Section 7.01(a)(3)) if in writing and mailed, first class, postage prepaid, to the Company, addressed to it at the address of its principal executive office at Number One General Mills Boulevard, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55426, Attention: Treasurer or at any other address previously furnished in writing to the Trustee by the Company.
Any request, demand, authorization, direction, notice, consent, waiver or Act of Holders or other document provided or permitted by this Indenture shall be in the English language, except that any published notice may be in the official language of the country of publication.
SECTION 1.07. Notices to Holders; Waiver. Where this Indenture provides for notice to Holders of any event, such notice shall be sufficiently given (unless otherwise herein expressly provided) if in writing and mailed by first class mail, postage prepaid, to such Holders in the manner and the extent provided in Section 313(c) of the TIA. Where this Indenture provides for notice in any manner, such notice may be waived in writing by the Person entitled to receive such notice, either before or after the event, and such waiver shall be the equivalent of such notice. Waivers of notice by Holders shall be filed with the Trustee, but such filing shall not be a condition precedent to the validity of any action taken in reliance on such waiver. In any case where notice to Holders is given by mail, neither the failure to mail such notice, nor any defect in any notice so mailed to any particular Holder shall affect the sufficiency of such notice with respect to other Holders, and any notice which is mailed in the manner herein provided shall be conclusively presumed to have been duly given. In the event of suspension of regular mail service or if for any other reason it shall be impracticable to give such notice to Holders by mail, then such a notification as shall be made to Holders with the approval of the Trustee shall constitute a sufficient notification for every purpose hereunder. In case by reason of the suspension of publication of any Authorized Newspaper or by reason of any other cause, it shall be impracticable to publish any notice to Holders as provided above, then said notification to Holders as shall be given with the approval of the Trustee shall constitute sufficient notice to such Holders for every purpose hereunder.
SECTION 1.08. TIA. Whenever this Indenture refers to a provision of the TIA, the provision is incorporated by reference in and made a part of this Indenture. All TIA terms used in this Indenture that are defined by the TIA, defined by TIA reference to another statute or defined by Commission rules have the meanings assigned to them by such definitions. If any provision hereof limits, qualifies or conflicts with the duties imposed by any of Sections 310 through 317 of TIA, through operation of Section 318(c) thereof, such imposed duties shall control.
