In offering this FERTILIZER to the Agricultural Community a Second Season we do so
with the utmost Confidence, feeling satisfied that the high opinion, we formed, and expressed
last season based on its Chemical Constituents have been most satisfactorily borne oat by the
test, by which all Kerti Ilizers must be judged, that of the Plantation.
Last season, owing to the lateness at which we commenced importing we were forced to pot
our Gaano on the market at once, but now having continued our importations during the sum
mer and fall, and having large and weH ventMated Warehouses in this City and City Point, we
are enabled to put our Guano on the market, in a condition as to dryness, and freedom from
lumps, equal to any Manufactured Fertilizer.
We solicit a careful perstial of our Circular containing the certificates sent ns. and which can
be had on application at this OFFICE, or from any of our AGENTS. Haying nothing to con
ceal, we made an innovation on established image, by publishing those letters received unfavora
ble to our Guano, but careful inquiry in many cases proves that the cause of its fsilure ass not
owing to any taint in the Uuano, but to those far beyond our control e have frequently
heard the same complaints of its kindred Fertilizer, Peruvian Guano, but the concurrent testi
mony of well known Farmers ami Planters from Maryland to the extreme Western counties of
North Carolina, justify ua in claiming a place for our Fertiliser Superior to many, and Second
to None. J.

Salisbury, N. O., October 10th, 1874.
Messrs Meroney & Bro.
Gentlemen : In reply to your inquiry as to the merits of the Guanahani Guano, I will slate
that I have given it a fair, and, as I think, a thorough test, and believe it to be ooe of the best
fertilizers now in use in our country. In the month of February 1 bought two tons and applied
it over my farm at the rate of 200 pounds to the acre under Cotton, and 100 poundsto the acre on
Corn. On the 8th of October I picked from one row of Cotton 14 rods long, which had been
! fertilized at the above rate. 8 pounds of seed cotton : from another immediately by the side of
I this one. of the same lenzth. to which I had applied no fertiliser. I picked H ounces the some

number of unopened bolls in each, and making calculation on this basis, I find that the land
without the Guanahani would yield 30 ounces to the row, 80 rows or 150 pounds to the acre ;
with Guanahani it will yield 12 pounds to the row, 80 rows or 960 pounds to the acre showing
a difference of over 600 per cent.
I have not had an opportunity to test the Corn yet, but from general observation, I feel war
ranted in making the statement that Guanahani has benefited my Corn at least 100 per cent.
On one acre of ground, as a test, I sowed 400 pounds of Guanahani broadcast, subsoiling at
the same time 15 inches deep. This acre, under ordinary circumstances, has average 700 pounds
of seed cotton ; this year the yield will be at least 1800 pounds E. A. PBOPST.
