As Florida oranges are now staple fruit, in the English markets, to obtain profitable prices, in the future it will only be necessary to export good quality and
land oranges in good condition in:the foreign markets. ? '
Ke8 ri. Smith & Crouch, one of the largest, best and most reliable fruit firms in England, say of Liverpool market, that the demand so large that 5.000.
boxes, weekly, could be handled iip:to J'anuary'1st"with satisfactory results if the fruit is sound on'arrival., '
As one of ,the l largest exporters of apples in New York and as a large importer of fruit from England, my knowledge. of the carrying ability of steamers enables..:<
me to select the best to 8hlp',6y .
Representing the best''firms hi;Liverpool""and Glasgow, and having my own house in London,are also further reasons'why shippers should send through me.
In order to export 'oranges, shippers can consign their fruit to me to IJew York. .If on examination is condition to forward, I will have the same placed on the .,
4 best'and'fast tsteamerr and send a Bill of,Lading evidence of shipment to shipper., If not sound enough to export, I will either turn the lot over to any New York.
firm the owner may'designate, or sell myself at auction.
The best steamers land their cargoes Liverpool, so that a cable report of sales is received in New Ydrk in twelve days after sailing. A check covering about the
amount of the proceeds is then sent on account to the shipper, by me. In twenty days.from date of shipment from Florida it is thus possible to have the proceeds in ...,
the hands of me shippers., .. "
' Please the facts .. .
