Something like one hundred and seventy-five acres of
tobacco grown near Suffolk this year, and as soon as the farmers
will increase the acreage sufficiently to justify the business men,
Suffolk will see that you have a warehouse and a tobacco
market worthy of the name and the City of Suffolk. We have
six railroads and a river transportation line. Buyers what can
you want better than we offer. Lands selling for less than half
the price elsewhere and more fertile, with better advantages
