TO THE TOBACCO GROWERS OF MADISON
AND ADJOINING COUNTIES:
We have sold over our floors thus farover three-quarters of a million
pounds of the new crop Burley tobacco and while we have not reached the
extreme top notch price for separate baskets, we have had a better general
average than we had last year. We have every reason to believe that after
the holidays an active market with strong to increasing prices may be
The following are some of our best prices; Coy & Curtis, general av.
erage $13 00; Coy and Prewitt, average 118.00; Ellswick fc Curtis, average
$20 23, one basket brought $10; Forrest Calico, average $17.73; Jerry
Noland, average $18 00.
We have never made statements to misIeadLanycne, make no claims
but those founded on facts. We wish again to repeat:
First, that we give every seller an absolutely square deal whether
he sells thousands of pounds or hundreds of pounds.
SeconJ, that we can, and do, get Just as much fcr your tobacco as
any house in the world for same grades.
Third, that we have plenty of room for you and your teams.
Fourth, that we have an up to date commodious warehouse with
every known facility for handling tobacco.
' Our two houses are connected by a viaduct, the old house being
used as a prizing plant where several of the largest buyers prize all tobac
co purchased in this market. We have had four years experience in the
loose leaf tobacco business which is worth a good deal to you but costs
you not a penny. We urge you if you have neve never sold with us to ask
any one who has, if our treatment does not warrant every claim we make
and we ask you to compare our prices with those of any other house in
the country. If our claims are true, just get in line with the crowd and
bring your tobacco to us. . December 19, will be our last sale before the
holidays but tobacco will be received at any time and sales will be re
sumed December 29. ' -
