THE following letter states plainly (better in fact than any other explanation) our
reason for these great price reductions. We must get rid of all odd samples
as well as our surplus warehouse stock. These odd pieces are the samples remain
ing on the floor after a very busy selling season. This will not be a half-hearted
price cutting of a few pieces, but a absolute CLEAN-UP SALE.
