Listen and Believe
Owing to the fact, as has been made public, we have sold
out our property at this place and have left on hand
twenty good fresh-shipped Tennessee mules with probably
half as many good grade, swapped-for mules, and owing
to the fact that the sale of mules has been very slow we
have been compelled to sell the mules which we have dis
posed of this Winter at a very high price We had to do
that in self-defence, but now the time has come when
these mules must be sold to allow us to enter upon our
new duties; so to prevent a'crash come with your cash
and our word for it, we will sell you the cheapest lot of
mules we have ever sold. That you may know whether
we mean business or not, come and see for yourselves for
this will be the last bunch of mules we will have for sale
before the first of October.
