Until the Boys Come Home

WE AMERICANS are pledging ourselves to put forth high courage every new day, regardless of reverses, to live right all the time, which means keeping splendidly efficient, — in short, to do cur individual jobs well, regardless of difficulties. All this that we may be better men, that the Boys over the Blue Water may never question the support of the Homeland, and that Morning may not be long in coming.

You are, to a greater or less extent, connected with the production of food. Your limitations in this great work are only bounded by your equipment and your desire. (Even the shortage of workers is only changing the kind of production — never the volume. ) The matter of the size of your operation isn’t vital — it is all fine, the intensive garden rows and the extensive farm acres. It is the great whole that counts, the magnificent national spirit that is sweeping America, that Everyone will help win the war.

In a quiet, unassuming way our company has furnished seed for a million Allied Acres. Perhaps yours are among them; if so, we greet you as an old friend, hoping all goes well. Perhaps we welcome you for the first time to the friends of Windermoor ; if so, we stand at your service. To one and all we extend midsummer greetings as one American to another — sharing with you a quiet determination to play the game even to The Last Long Mile.

STOKES SEED FARMS CO. Bp FRANCIS C. STOKES,

President and General Manager
