Well. I can't tell you
much of anything about
what is in Chesterfields
BUT I smoke a good deal, and I noticed that
they said that Chesterfield Cigarettes
were milder and tasted better; so I smoked
a package or two and found it to be true.
I also noticed that the cigarettes were well
filled, seemed to be the right length and the
right circumference, and burned uniformly
not up one side and down the other.
I liked the aroma very pleasing. I liked the
appearance of the cigarette the paper, dead
white. The package rather appealed to me.
I don't know exactly what it is, but I just
like 'em. It's about tie only luxury that I
enjoy; so I think it's all right for me to have
a good cigarette, and I believe Chesterfield
is just about the best.
