Dear Brother and Family:
Your letter received a few days

It found me O. K., and I was glad
to hear that you are all well and

What If You Were Buying An
Airplane to Use?
You Would Insist on Knowing All About that Machine
Before You Bought It, Wouldn't You?
If you had to make airplane
trips frequently and had to buy a
machine for the purpose, you
would take the utmost care in se
lecting it.
You would realize that your
life, to a great extent, depended
upon the judgment you used in
making the selection.
Buying direetly from a catalog
wouldn't interest you.
You would be interested most
in a machine raad by a manufac
turer who was widely known as a
maker of reliable airplanes.
You would rather buy from a
friend that you know was inter
ested in your welfare.
Most of all, you would want to
see that machine-to go over
every part of it before you bought
