Letter to D. L. Boozer & Son.
Newberry, S. C.
Dear Sirs: You understand grind
ing wheat, buckwheat, rye, oats and
corn. We understand grinding
white-lead and white-zinc. The two
sorts of grinding are not much alike.
Very likely oats and wheat behave
very differently in the mill, and you
manage them differently-we know
very little about your work: don't
need to; we'd rather depend on you.
But we paint your house and mill,
and out-buildings; perhaps you'd be
glad to know about grinding paint;
for some people mix their paint with
a stick in a tub.
We use lead-and -zinc-nothing
else. And our zinc is as tough as
your oats. Tub mixers imagine they
mix it. They don't; they can't.
Takes grinding to mix lead-and-zinc.
They are both white; when are
they thoroughly mixed? Tub-mixers
don't know it; but tub-mixed lead
and-zinc is a streak of one alongside
of a streak of the other.
We grind as you grind; and our
paint is lead-and-zinc ground togeth
er, mixed intimately; it is neither lead
nor zinc; but lead-and-zinc; each lost
in the other; both lost in the mix
ture. Lead chalks and zinc peels,
lead-and-zinc ground together hang
on and protect each* other.
We take care of your mill outside,
you take care of it inside. Yours
