A Real Sale with a Reason. Don't let anything keep you away
Mangum, Okla., Sept. 19, 1914.
Mr. B. L. Bratton, Mgr. Hollis Store.
Dear Sir:—I have decided to close out a number of my retail stores and I'm going to com-
mence by closing out the Hollis store first. I hope you will carry out my instructions to the
letter. In the first place 1 want you to close the store and gt> over the stock carefully, marking
the goods to sell ror about 50c on the dollar. If there is anything you want to sell for 25c 011
the dollar to make a quick clearance of it, mark it that and let it go for I don't want to move
$1.00 worth or goods from there if the price will move it. I oWn every piece of lumber in
the house, including the backs of the windows. Sell them to the highest bidder, just as it all
stands. 1 want to sell all show cases and fixtures, including the safe. Trade merceandise
for cotton, giving the farmers 1 c per pound, more for it than they can sell it for on the streets.
Now don't fail to cut the price so those goods will go. I'd rather sell for less than cost as to
have to buy boxes and pay freight on them.
/ - Very truly yours,
J. D. Curreathers.
