Advertisement reads, “The Cloak Season. The Cloak Season is on and we have the kind that fit. Our cloaks are bought direct from the manufacturer and are made especially for our trade. Come in and try them on and be convinced that they are the best fitting cloaks in town. Our Men’s Clothing is the up-to-date kind. Give us a chance to fit you out with a suit or an overcoat. We have everything you want too, in the grocery line. Our coffees are of the best grades. Let us sell you a trial pound and we will grind it for you. We have some nice trimming which we would like to show you. Bring us your butter and eggs. Respectfully, Armstrong & Covington.”
