Editor Manning Times:
I promised the Independent tobacco
growers in your last issue to let them
know this week, what I would do this
year about selling their tobacco; whe
ther I would locate here or elsewhere.
This is to notify the public that I will
be in business in Manning, on the Levi
block up town. I have secured twp
buildings and am going to operate
two warehouses 'at the same time.
.While these buildings are not as ade
quate from a floor space standpoint
as I would like to have them, at the
same time we will do the best we can
We will start to build early next sea..
son so as to have ample space for the
1923 crop. These two buildings are
as large as the Harris Warehouse,
probably ,a little more floor space
than the Warehouse operated by
Messrs Harris & Sons last season
Now boys, hurriedly I must say a
few things and get busy. I shall be
gin to take in tobacco by next Satur
day, the twenty-second, I would ad
vise everybody to handle your tobac
co careful during this' wet weather.
Pick out the burnt and tie your lugs
up in one or two grades. This isn't
hard to do, .very simple. Put twelve
or fifteen leaves to the bundle for
lugs, and less for better grades.
I will buy or advance money on
your tobacco beginning Saturday
coming. Hold a stiff upper lip, and
do not let any one lead you to believe
that you must sign a contract in or
der to sell this crop of tobacco. I
will have a full corps of buyers rep
resenting all the big companies. All
reports to the contrary are Aibsolutely
I expect to see toacco sell well,
and remember the time is near at
hand when we will test this out on a
- competitative basis with our oppon
ents. I for one am not afraid to meet
the challenge. Do not let any one
fob] you in to signing this contract by
making you believe that Cothran will
not carry out the above promise.
If God lets me live I shall do all in
my power to carry out this fight to
the last trench.
You will be flooded with literature
on the get-rich quick scheme from
now on until the opening date of the
markets; you will have the' chance of
hearing silver-tongued orators that
are working for glory, of course, these
gentlemen are actuated by patriotic
motives, and are not getting any pay
for their valuable services that they
are rendering their fellowmen. You,
will be told if you do. not join that the
markets will be closed by force in a

little while and that you will not
have any where left to sell your to
bacco. Again I say this is false to
the very core. You will be told that
in a few days Lake City, and all the
other markets will be closed. Remem
ber this is only propaganda to get
your signature. I was born and rais
ed in the same community with the
Bowens at Lake City, I knew their
father before them; he was high
toned and thoroughly reliable; he was
indeed a gentleman of the old school
type, a man of integrity. G. R. Bow
en and M. K. Gravley will carry out
their promise at Like City. Any one
that has any money to lose see me I
will take all you can spare on this
score. Don't be backward come right
ahead. I mention Lake City because
this is our largest market in South
Carolina, and this is why they use
this in knocking other places like
>acco at auctioni
before. All the

Handle your tobacco good and bring

do all in my power to give you a
square deal. I shall sell tobacco all

afternoon. I can loads up the ware
