The letters of recommendation we have got from companies that have pulled out of our agency would fill a scrap-book, and we are proud of them as showing that however much they differed from us on business, personally the writers was all friendly.

Agent of the Great Waugoo roa(', for a pass and it ought to be here in a week at the outside.
