I want to say that the Home Furniture Co. had nothing whatever to do with the sale of the damaged stock, as it was my own personal business and not in any way connected with the Home Furniture Co. Neither was there any stock carried into the store of the Home Furni ture Company. f I hope that this will correct the wrong impression that some Deople seem to have. 1$ Thanking each and every one for their liberal patronage. am, Very respectfully,.
