Letter to G. J. Krug.
Dear Sir: Porterhouse, so much: neck,
so much; all the way between.
Just so with paint. Devoe Lead and
Zinc is the porterhouse. Nobody wants
the neck; the between, some say is good
enough for them.
But Devoe costs less, not more, than
between. Lead and oil is between; it is
the old fashioned paint. But zinc has
come in. Zinc toughens white lead.
Devoe Lead and Zinc is the paint.
Mr. John N Deitel, Fair Haven, N,
Y., writes:
Mr. Charles Hollenbeck, of this place
painted his house three years ago with Devoe
Lead and Zinc; his father painted at the
same time with lead and oil. To-day the
son's house looks as well as the day it was
painted, while the father's house lias all
chalked off and needs paintin.- yery badly.
The father says he will paint with Devoe
next time,
Yours truly,
