Brattleboro,
Dear Slr: Let's have a little prlvate
talk by ourselves on buslness; nobody
elso, please, read.
You want to know how to do n cheap
Job of pnlntlng, nnd have it look good.
Here It Is: Tho cheapest thlng thero ls In
the way of a good-looking Job say noth
Ing nbout lts being good is Dovoe; tho
regular thlng In Devoe.
Tho reason is; Devoo goes further than
anything elso. Lead-and-oll is good
looking; don't go so far nnd costs more.
The other pnlnts are more or less short
In one 'way or another; don't go so far
and costs moro than Devoe,
Devoe osts least of all; you don't
mlnd Its lastlng longer, do you? We.
can't help lt; n paint that goes further
lasts longer; we can't help lt.
Yours truly,
W F. W. DEVOE & CO,
P. S. Robbins & Cowles sell our palnt.
