I think that I am entitled to be called
charter member of the Edgeworth
Smokers Club, as I have used the Edge
worth Sliced Plug between twenty and
When I commenced using it I was
selling hardware on the road. One of my
cutomers who kept a general store told
me that he had just received a new to
bacco and wished that I would try ft.
He gave me a box for which he charged
me 20c. He made a mistake, as it was
selling at that time for 26c. I liked it
ao well that I made it a point to ask for
ft in every store in the different towns
that I made but few had it. The next
time that I called on this customer I
bought six boxeB, which would last until
I got around again. I still continued to
ask for I I the different towns and tried
to induce the dealers to stock it.
In 1906 or 1907 I went to So. Carolina
and stayed there three years. I was sur
prised not to be able to get it there. At
that time I was in Beaufort, S. and
made frequent trips to Savannah, Ga.,
and Charleston, S. C. and was unable to
get itin either of these cities. Finally I
ordered some direct from you and also
induced a dealer in Beaufort to stock it.
I have used it always for over twenty
years except occasionally when I could
not get it. I figure that I have smoked
over 1000 of the 25c boxes, which have
cost for the last few years 85c. For at
least five years I have not bought a cigar.
Have had some given to me, but they do
not take the place of the old pipe filled
I am sixty-one years of age and still
think that it is the best tobacco on the
market. I don't think there is a man
living who has smoked any more Edge
worth than I. What do you think?
