OUR CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN A SUCCESS
EVERYBODY IS NOW CONVINCED AS TO
THE EXISTENCE OF
OIL IN GEORGIA
In proof of this many who scoffed the loudest in the beginning are our friends
and own stock in the company.
. Since we commenced the agitation of this subject five tests are now actively un
der way with four more in progress,
In the meantime some of the oldest companies are taking notice and have their
scouts taking leases through the chalk ridge of Georgia. This means something.
STOP AND THINK OF THE EVIDENCE
Cumulative in its nature, favorable to success, which has been brought to light.
Actual seepages of burning gas' which any one can see to-day surrounding our Lil
lian G No. 1 ; actual oil taken from the wrecked. Hinson well in Jeff Davis county.
Close to the structure we have located Lillian B No. 2, on which will be ready to -
go by the first of September, besides the unearthing of over thirty other seepages
of actual petroleum oil which will stand every chemical test. No wonder people
are being convinced and getting busy. But say, the Waukalla, Florida, well of
oil on this chalk ridge extending to' the gulf, about concludes the argument, only
we contend for every gallon they produce that far down we will show a barrel on
the apex of this ridge. Do not forget that the well near Savannah last week
struck gas. Can you still wonder why people are becoming aroused over the sub
ject of oil in Georgia.
We once appealed to you from a* standpoint or State pride and patriotism.
That day has passed. The appeal we make to you now is based on
COLD BLOODED BUSINESS
Analyze our position, get the reports of geologists and others who have made
oil finding a life study, see what they are predicting. We will gladly furnish
copies on request. After reading carefully if you have the nerve and faith, risk a
few of your dollars, which should be returned to you an hundredfold in a very
. LISTEN TO COLD FACTS
People are buying leases in Texas and other States, expecting luck to come
their way, and have some kindly hand to come along and make them rich by drill
ing near their holdings. With the average leasing scheme being peddled through
this section you have about one chance in a million, provided the titles were to
prove good. '
GOM1ARE YOUR CHANCES
Right here at your door we have predictions of abundant oil, which would make
any state envious. We are uot trusting to chance for some one to come along and
develop around us. We are going after it ourselves. The Lillian B No. 1 is go
ing down. We passed the troublesome quick sands at 400 feet and are now on
the 800 foot casing drive and will soon be on the 2,200 foot drive where the ex-v
perts say that we will realize our fondest hope (oil in abundance).
Lillian B No. 2, in Jeff Davis county, will start with a double crew about the
first of September with everything on hand to complete, everything paid for and a
healthy treasury to carry on the work.
We have added to our original holdings surrounding other seepages approved by
our field men, all of which are increased assets of the company. .

Our sale is rapidly drawing to a close. The number of unsold lots which gives
you a pro rata interest iii all profits of the company is relatively small. You can

IF YOU WILL ACT QUICKLY
We want to warn you, however, we are getting down to a depth where a day's
drilling may unearth something that will cause us to withdraw all unsold shares at
any price. It is your risk to delay. ?
We Want No Dissatisfied Purchaser
We are arranging at the conclusion of our sale to organize clubs and take a rep
