There is a notable increase in my business. I expect it from
the class of work I am doing. I do not expect to get ail the
optical business in the city; any more than one physician ;
could obtain all the medical practice, but my aim is to secure
patronage enough to keep me reasonably busy and to give ';
such satisfactioh that my institution! will be indelibly fixed :
in the minds' of those' who desire the best Tat: moderate
charges.'-.;. !;; .' 'uW'i:-'''"9i.K "'''' J
It is very gratifying to note that much of my patronage re
cently has come from parties who have been recommended
to me by pleased customers; .Hence I want more customers t
to please. All the work, from the examination of the eye to
the finished lenses and fitting of glasses is done under my
' personal supervision.' Knowing that the work is right, I do
,'nbt hesitate to guarantee satisfaction.1 Hours 9 to 5i30 "
