"The misnomer of a corporation in any written instrument does not invalidate the instrument if it can be reasonably ascertained from it what corporation is intended." (Civ. Code, sec. 357; Underhill v. Santa Barbara etc. Co., 93 Cal. 314, 28 Pac. 1049; Donohoe-Kelly Banking Co. v. Southern Pacific Co., 138 Cal. 192, 94 Am. St. Rep. 28, 71 Pac. 93; People v.
