VERY likely you haven't. Few of us have. But
you'd like to have it no question about that.
: It would give you a pretty comfortable feeling, if
ithere were sickness in the family, to know that a
thousand dollars in good, hard gold was right where
!you could get at it or if something went wrong in
your business, or if you saw a chance to use a few
' hundred to advantage.
After all, it's something every family ought to have,
j a "gold reserve" for emergenciesand the bigger it ia
' the better.
That's just what Liberty Bonds are, your emergency
;fund. In gold, too, because the bonds are payable
jby the United States Treasury in gold when they
; become due. And they are far safer and easier to take
care of than actual gold dollars hidden away in a
i cash box.
Your dollarl in Liberty Bonds are always available
for immediateuse, because any bank will lend you
money on the onds or help you to sell them.
There's anotler advantage, too, over gold dollars in
a cash box. Dollars put aside in Liberty Bonds are
not merely dollars saved and lying idle against the day
of need. They 'are invested dollars, drawing interest
day and night, Veek-days and Sundays. They're the
sort of golden hoard that grows by itself.
True, you can't build up that family "gold reserve"
by just wishing for it. But a little sacrifice on your
part now will do it.
You'll never have a better chance. It isn't likely, now
ttiat the war is over, that the Government will ever
again issue bonds with so high an interest rate and in
every way so attractive as an investment not, at
least, in your lifetime.
Don't be misled by present-day market condition. They are governed by supply
and demand and have no bearing on the real value of Liberty Bonds. The United
States Government has never failed to pay its bonds at their full face value. One
thousand dollars in sold will always be worth one thousand dollars in gold, but no
more. One thousand dollars in Liberty Bonds will be worth one thousand dollars in
gold when they come due as the United States Government promises, and in the
meanwhile they have paid you many dollars in interest.
