.h en, op.-I as read every tyora of 4 Wo' won't you 6o me
the favor to let mj3now if it does notlay before you facts that
cannot be disputed and if carried out along the lines I have indi-
cated, why with ,a gey dollars per month a persdo cannot become in-,
-- dependent of his salary and likewise become rioc."
r.- ,T i -. .. .
.. *I am ,skin~tiese questions airiily- 'e6dise 1, personally,
S, knov, -,hat I h&v, inened.-to make clear in ay Vok,' bit Iam not so
sure that they will be clearly understood.

.ie .Arksas.p.a land., fully-de8crcibed*In 1f'yQ O, is an
:.:. exooptional offering. -an=d.. 'dubtif tifTbre- ever h:s 'een p.r 'ever,
t, will again .te iftered-..sawhere. i .the United bta.tes any land at any-
where near these prices, which makes it easy at this time to begin
a systematic.oampaign of land operations while on a salary basis,
b "t even though you could not get this offering to start with, this
K "'would in no wise effect the method of operation as plainly stated
t : my book, it woutl simply mean that your profit would be reduced
S t the start off. The method of operation is fixed and correct as is
a : ny sound business method.

. B ^ 0ow while" I am in t position today to assure you that you
...a.. Purchase these lands rt prices mentioned on blanbs enclosed, I
do not wish you to gain the impression thct this price holds good for
; you indefinitely, because the price is going to,raise aad raise quick-
ly, hnd you are only guaranteed this prAoe for 15 days. Mae prica
S may not raise then, but raise it surelyill, rind soon, s do not let
this initial price pass on this land, because it mesns a successful
'. .- ocreer for you and it means starting land operations on a proper
basis. L&anm like this could not remain at this price long. In fact,
it is reasonable to suppoee that it will double in price very soon
and at that price it would be too cheap for any good lands.

















I don't mean to ask you or anyone else to undertake a
proposition that means so much for the future to jump into land op-
erations before giving it a little thought, but it trTikes me that'
after a person :has 'read over my book, .he is just about fit and pre-
pared to go right Into a successful career of land dealings and
ree.dy to take hold of a real offer such as thip Arkansas proposition,
and therefore see .=m reason why procrastination should creep in and
steal away a grand opening for a prosperous life.

I am going to guide you along in thesqilend operations
and _ploe before you from time to time opportunities which come to
my company right ,along-; opportunities thdet rould not be offered
small handlers because they are usually big e&als 'involving thousand.
of acres to buy and sell, and the reason my oompony can qurio.ly hand.
them Is simply because I let all my -follcwers -n on it along vith us,
and in this way, we all take what we w4nt end'together we c.an buzy
and sell the 'largest of propositions id are inB on the ground floor
and individually our profits are large. For this reason, .7 do .not
hesitate to say to .you-- ,begin your .lanCL operations at once. Our
assistance is at all times at your service. Our 2mnorledge of., and.
oapaoity fdr., buying aand selling lands is at E.ll times subject to
your call.

Send in your order for as much of 'this Arkansas .land as
you want, pay on small payments., then sell at a profit .End. buy some
more.. Shortly your profits will place you in position to own many
pieces of land., hold until you get a 'profit, then buy more and so
on. Its a fascinating business., exciting at times and profitable
above all other xrsuits. s.

Any other land information you might went., just let me lmow
and I will be pleased to furnish same..

Very truly your,





..$5.00 cash and $5.00 per, month will be arranged for those
desiring easier payments.
