Why go to Texas and New Mexico for $1 5 Land, when you can BUY
BETTER LAND AT HOME from $3 to $5 LESS PER ACRE

And my prices prove it, J don't only say this, but will prove it to any party going west with me, that tiie prices I quote you are true, and from $1 to M
an acre cheaper than other agents quote on same quality of lands, that simply take you to some agent in the west or south.
