Letter from Wiant and Barr

Having sold our interest in business with a view to move from the town, I take this method of extending thanks to my many friends and customers for their kind and liberal patronage which you have given me for the past 30 years

It has always been our policy to try to buy best and most dependable fifa coins goods for the money and to merit the confidence of the public.

The business will be continued along the same lines as in the past and will be conducted by Asa B. Harris, W. J. Mathews and Jas. W. Barr.  All of whom are experienced men and we hope you will show them the same kind consideration that you have always shown us and we assure you that you will be treated fairly and given the best prices consistent with honest merchandise.

We want to get our matters settled up as early as convenient and hope to see each and every customer within the next six weeks and settle.  If in town don't fail to come in, whether you are prepared to pay or not and we will go over our account and balanced up and make some arrangement about the payment in the future.

Thanking you all again for past favors, we remain,

Yours very respectfully,
Wiant & Barr
