"I wish to say to our customers, one and all, that notwithstanding our misfortune in burning out, we still have on hand a fair stock of doors, mouldings, trim, etc, in our store room and we think plenty of hot bed sash for all demands, and with a little more than the usual notice we can furnish anything in our line as usual."
