Dear Sir; Some think we take a good deal
of risk in inviting complaints of Devoe l?ad
an.bzinc?ne authorize our agent to sell it
nnder this guarantee:
"If yon have any fanlt to find with thia
paint, either now in potting it on, or here?
after)^ the wear, tell your dealer about it.
"We authorize him to do what ia right at
our expense."
The following -tory tells how little the risk
is:
J. A. A'lher-Cn, Inri ware dealers, Kb. ia '
beck. N. Y , hnvp ?j*d Devoe from 76 to now;
have sold Ihoi a nda of gallons and have had
juet one complaint ia all thia time.
Three aides of a home were perfect-the fourth
side waa aa bad aa the iii re ? were good.
Kxp'anation?It rained the night before Ihe
fourth aide was ptinted; hu I tbe painters did?
n't wait for th? wood to dry.
What ia done in au li a case? Whatever tin
dealer who so'd the paint, considers it fair to
do. We leave it to him. He may not do ex?
actly what we > hould do if we were there: but
we are not th're. The tea*, we can do ia to
leave it to him
