A. J. Roberts A Co., Atlanta, Ga.
Gentlemen: I aui well pleased with tho
result of the uue of the "Double Refitted
Poudrutte" on my crops. I tried it on both
corn and cotton, and am satisfied wherever
it was applied the yiold was more than
double what it would have been without it.
I regrot exceedingly my not using it moro
extensively tho present" year, but will try
to make np my loss hy purchasing a larger
quantity next spring". I regard it as the
ehenpest, most reliable, and easiest, niau
agod fertilizer within my knowledge, and
cheerfully recommend it fas I have tried it
thoroughly) to the farmers of this section,
and particularly to theme planting cotton,
from the fact of its causing it to mature
from ton days to two weeks earlier than it
would without the use of the Pondrctte. I
alho used it on my garden, and fouud it of
much benefit to ail kinds of plants. Verv
respectfully, Ac. G. S. OGLESUY. *
Extract from a lotter received from Prof.
Martin, of Hampden. Sidney College.
Va., dated July 1, 1867:
Tho Double He-fined Poudretto is operat?
ing liko a charm on my crop, and attract?
ing universal attention from H11 beholders.
I ara already satisfied that it is the cheap?
est and surest renovator of our worn-out
" High Shoah. (Ja., OntiMr 4, 1887.
James R. Dev, Esq.
Slr: The Double Refined Poudretto I
bought for two other parties in connection
with myself-one of them used it on cotton
mid corn, and thinks it answered finely;
tho other put it on cotton, on very poor
ground, and thinks it doubled his crop. 1
used it on corn. It ans.vered finely, and
was thought by thu hand that cultivated
the crop to be fully equal to Rhode's Super
Phosphate. I also used it ou about an
acre of cotton, and I am clearly of opinion
that it is the best and cheapest fertilizer
in uso, aud I expect to order several tons
tliis winter. Yours, very respectfnllv,

Tho Double Refined Poudretto, pur?
chased of you last spring. I think, in?

Dear Sir:' i can safely say that jour
Donble Relined Poudretto is far superior
to any other fertilizer for cotton; for 1 have
given it a fair trial this season. Yours,

Dear Sir: I used the Double Refined
Poudretto, bought of you last spring, on
corn. I think it increased tho yield one
half. I consider it an excellent manure.
Respectfully, T. HOLCOMBE.
Ridgeway, S. C., September 21, 1867.
Mr. JamcB R. Doy.
Sir: 1 applied tho Double Refined Pou?
dretto by itself, and in combination with
other fertilizers, on cotton, and am ploasfd
with it; so much so that it is my present
intention to purchase a larger supply of
you tho next year to apply to my cotton
crop. Yours very rcspectfnllv,

?fir: In reply to your inquiry of the re?
sults of our experience in the use of your
improved Poudretto-purchased of you for
this year's cotton crop-wo would beg leave
to say that tho present season has been
one quite unfavorable to tho action of all
Several kinds of manures were used by
UR, with tho oxecpti n of your Toudrctte,
with little or no effect to tho crop.
Where the Poudretto waa used, it gave
us near half a bale more pur acre, and
caused tho cotton to open mnch earlier;
and wo would, therofore. recommend the
same as a concentrated manure for the
growth of cotton, as well as improvement
to tho neil. Yours, very rcspectfnllv,
