we will Sell for Cash.
We have carried you for eleven long months, urn) many
for a longer time, and now we ask that you pay us cash for one \
month for all your purchases of us. It is getting late in the
season and we want to clean up all outstanding notes and ac-
counts. We need the money. We don't care if you are worth
ten thousand dollars, it don't help us any if we can't use the
money when we need it. We don't believe we have a name on
our books but what is good and will pay, and to make this asser-
tion good we kindly ask that every one knowing themselves in-
debted to us will come in and make settlement with us in the
next ten days. Many w-ho needed help all the year came to us
and got what they wanted. Now we need money; will you be as
good to us as we have lieen to you? Kindly think this matter
over. So doubt many will say, "I haven't got the money and
can't pay now." We were in the same lix when you wanted
something to eat.. We didn't have the money to carry you on,
but we borrowed it. Will you do as much for us as we have
done for you?
All who respond to this request will not be forgotten—
neither will those be forgotten who pay no attention to this
