It Is a rather difficult task to keep
potted plants, shrubbery or flowers

next time he. she of they are inclined
to steal flowers or potted plants from

personally call the green house and
have such flowers as they are tempted
to steal delivered to their house at no
expense to them whatever.

that should exist among such thieves
as you and gel In touch with nrs for
your flowers hereafter. I will appre
