Mutual Insurance Association, Greenwood, S. C.
Dear Mr. Blake:-It gives me a great deal of pleasure to have you
issue me a policy of insurance in your-what is now "our" insurance
company, for with the policy I become a member just as much as
any one else.
I know that my loss will be paid if I have one. I know that I will
get insurance at lowest possible cost. I know that I am a member of
an essentially American institution, where not only are my affairs
managed by those I choose, but by myself in annual meetings.
I rejoice to know the extension of business of the Abbeville-Green
wood Mutual Insurance Company, and the 27 years of honorable ser
vice behind it, is a guarantee for the future.

This introduces to favorable consideration the Abbeville-Greenwood

county. Abbeville, for 27 years; has always paid its losses promptly,
and has saved the insured considerable money in rates of insurance.
It has kept an account with this bank, and the same has been satis
factory to us. As managed by Messrs. J. R. Blake and J. Frazer
Lyon, it is doing a good work for the counties in which it has oper
ated, and we take pleasure in recommending it as a first-class insur
ance company. I carry considerable insurance with it myself.

Letter From an Edgefield Editor
Edgefield, S. C., Jan. ll, 1919
Mr. J. R. Blake, General Agent, Abbeville-Greenwood
Mutual Insurance Association, Greenwood, S. C.
Dear Sir:-I have two policies in your Association and I feel that
my property is as well protected by these policies as it would be by
policies written by large stock companies. Soon after your Associa
tion began to solicit business in Edgefield county I observed that the
class of risks accented by your agents were the best, and this, to
gether with the splendid record of the Abbeville-Greenwood Associa
tion has made during the 27 years of its existence, inspired confidence
in its Association and its management.
I have no hesitancy in recommending the Abbeville-Greenwood
Mutual Insurance Association.
J. L. M1MS.
To those who desire safe protection for their property, and would co-operate in building up home enter
prises, we would say insure in the Abbeville-Greenwood Mutual Insurance Association. For further in
formation call on one o? our agents, or write to
