Why is it that E. P. Nash, of Petersburg, con
tinues to Sell so many Pianos?
T1HE ANSWER IS PLAIN AND TRUTH
ful, as follows:
Because, for more than twenty years tie has eonwientioas
ly avoided selling any but the BEST INSTRUMENTS!
And the natural result has been, that every one of the
Thousands of Pianos he has sold has bad tbe ei ect of sel
ling others, and thus year after year, his sales have increas
ed, until, to meet tbe demand, be finds it necessary to keep
on hand a slock of from forty to fifty Instruments; but,
suppose for a moment that his Pianos had been of doubtful
quality, can any candid thinking peison fail to see, that -the
Eublic would long since have found it out, and the result
aye been a falling off instead of increase in sales ?
