To Our Friends !
and Patrons I
We desire to say that our store room and stock
are gradually emerging from the state of dis
order caused by the work of remodeling our
building, and we will soon be ready to serve
you better than ever.
The spirit of forbearance on your part, as evi
denced by your liberal patronage during the
progress of the work, is appreciated by us, and
we desire to show our appreciation in the bet
ter service we may be able to render in the fu
ture. Our desire to better serve you prompted
us to undertake the seemingly almost impos
sible thing, of successfully conducting a mer
cantile business in a building undergoing re
construction during the winter months. The
measure of success attending our efforts we
leave the public to judge. If we have been
successful, we owe our success largely to your ,
indulgence and co-operation. The fact that
our sales for the year were over $25,000.00
more than for the previous one leads us to con
clude that our efforts towards progress meets
with your hearty approval. Your confidence
and good will are more to us than money; and
it is our earnest desire to conduct our business
in the future in such a manner as will merit
your continued confidence, good will and pat
ronage. Yours respectfully,
