Ya Need A Rooster To Pick Up Chicks!
Bessie B. Carswell claims she knows the secret to MAKING every hen lay and pay. GUARANTEED. I could not resist, although I've used the image before. This piece of paper is dated October 20, 1919, and I really wonder if every individual who received one of these letters thought much about just the eggs. If you want a renewable food supply with chickens - YA NEED A ROOSTER. So... I gave her what the hens want, and it has nothing to do with Rockledge Poultry Tonic.
And once again, Mary, of A. J. Smith & Company Antiques, is the source for a great piece of old paper. And thanks to my sister Penny (the Paper Sleuth) for finding this gem.
