ROSSOFF DKAI.ER IN DRY GOODS, CLOTHING, SHOES, HATS. CARS. ETC. TRUNKS, SUIT CASES, LADIES AND GENTS FURNISHINGS Ladies Hats a Specialty A Full Line of Ladies Cloaks Starkville, Miss , October 15th, 1915. TO OUR FRIENDS and CUSTOMERS: We don't like to write letters for pastime. Our business is the selling of dry goods etc., and when we talk about them we have something worth while to sav Our sole aim and purpose in writing you this letter is to convince you that in justice to your own interests you should take time in the near future to look over our new fall styles. We want to make everyone in this community if possible, realize how much we deserve their patronage this fall We honestly believe that never before has there been the opportunity to secure such great values as we are now offering. We don’t claim that we can work miracles—-that we have more brains and experience than the “other fellow” but we don't apply all our brains and all our experience—all ability that we have —to producing merchandise that will enable us to hold all our old customers and get many new ones. It means more to us than mere profit to ac complish these things, and we exert our whole time and effort toward continual improvement. We want to impress upon your mind most emphatically that we will be glad to show 30U anything in our store at any time, just as cheerfully when you come to look, as when you come to buy. In this respect we are, perhaps different from other firms. We really don ’ t want anyone to buy a thing here unless he feels he is serving his own best interest by so doing. When we buy our goods we buy where we can get the best goods for the least money We expect the people of this community to buy their goods in the same way. We are positive our values are unsurpassed. Our economical methodsof doing busines and our willingness to accept a very small margin of profit, makes it possible for us to undersell all other stores. If you find upon investi gation that you can get a little better service here than at any other store, we shall expect to get your trade. Therefore we shall expect soon to have the pleasure of showing you some of the new tall goods nowon display here- Come soon* Yours very truly, M. ROSSOFF.
