Dear Sir -
We are introducing to the public a very superior article of French Brk. & Dinner Coffee
which we are fully assured will give better satisfaction than any other coffee now in
use. As we have been supplying the City trade with it for years it has been fully
tested, but never until lately have we introduced it to the country trade.
Your name has been handed to us as a desirable party to assist in introducing it to the
public. Among the advantages this coffee has over others is, that we buy all our Coffee
by the Cargo and select none but the best. Our profits are smaller than any other house
is willing to sell for. We have the oldest and most experienced Coffee roaster in the
country. And we have a secret in manufacturing known only to ourselves, which improves
the flavor and appearance very much.
With your permission we will send you a Sixty lb. Box of this Coffee as a sample for
trial. If you find it sells well, and gives good satisfaction and that it is for your
advantage to keep it, you may send us the pay for it, and if it does not please you and
suit your trade you can return the Coffee within Sixty Days, we paying freight & expenses
Our price of this Coffee is 25 cts per lb, and when sold by the "trade mark" is usually
sold for 35 cts per lb.
Your early reply is solicited,
Very Respectfully Yours,
The Great American Tea Co.
35-37 Vesey St.
This proposition expires in ninety days.
