Your Liberty Bond.
The United States Government bor
rowed money from you to finance the
War. You hold the Government's
promise to pay you back. This
promise is called a Liberty Bond or
' Victory Note. On this Bond is stated
the conditions under which the -Government
borrowed the money from
For instance: If you. hold a Bond
of the Third Liberty Loan, it states
that on April 15th and October 15th
of each year until maturity, you will
receive interest on the amount you
paid for the Bond. Other issues bear
other rates of Interest and other
maturity dates, all of which are clear
ly stated on the Bond.
Now, if you keep your Bond until
the date when the Government pays
you in full for it, you do not need to
worry if, in the meantime, the price
is low one day or high the next. You
and Unole Sam are liviog up to
agreement with each other;
neither will lose by it.
On the other band, if you sell
Liberty Bond now, you will find
the man you sell it to will not
you a dollar for every dollar you paid
for it. The prloe has been brought
down because so many people are
offering to sell their Bonds. If the
market is flooded with tomatoes, you
can buy them cheap, but if everyone
Is clamoring for tomatoes and there
are few to be had, the price goes up.
The same is true of Liberty Bonds,
Short-sighted people are djimplnir
them on the market, and wise ones
are buying them.
The best advice that can be given
. to the owner of a Liberty Bond is
thie: II old the bond you bought dur
ing the war; it is as safe and sound as
thef United State? Government itself,
Boy as many more at the present
low rate as yen can afford. If you.
bold them to maturity, you are bound
to make the difference between what
they sell at now and their face value,
You will also receive good interest on
Hold on to your Liberty Bonds
and buy more. . i ,
