Des Moines, Iowa, January 1922 Greetings to Our Customers

The lower value levels of merchandise generally has in our opinion reached the bottom so far as farm and garden products are concerned. We are fully confident that better prices will be realized by the farmer and producer this coming year. We do not believe it advisable to curtail your planting operations, but rather to strive for greater returns from the land. This you can do by using our Choice Iowa Seeds, and giving the crops the care and attention worthy of good seed. By this means you can increase production to a profit. We expect by supplying seeds of the best quality to help raise both production and profit, and to strengthen our position as

IOWA SEED COMPANY, DES MOINES, IOWA

VEGETABLE SEEDS

[IMAGE] SEEDS TESTING AND TRIALS

Our stock of vegetable seeds we are sure cannot be excelled either in quality of selection by any firm in the country, as we watch our growing crops with great care, taking pains to isolate and keep pure and true to name. Every variety listed in desirable and has our recommendation. Our packets are, we believe, as well filled as any reliable seed dealer's in the United States, and, in fact, a comparison has shown that they contain more seed, on the average, than those of any other firm whose packets we have secured. We pay the postage on vegetable seeds at these prices, except on Beans, Peas and Corn at the 3 lb. and larger quantities. We make it a rule to carefully test all seeds. We carry on extensive trials by which we are enabled to offer only those strains of seeds which come up to the standard of purity and excellence, and are of the highest vitality, and our Choice Iowa Seeds are sure to please. The vegetable seed department is under the personal supervision of the president of our company. He places the contacts, inspects the growing crops, superintends the farm operations in summer and dur'ng the busy months in spring he gives personal oversight to the order filling department. We give you high quality in our Choice Iowa Seeds.

SEEDS BY PARCEL POST Customers are urged to use the Parcel Post . We return Excess Postage.

BE SURE AND ADD ONE POUND ADDITIONAL TO COVER WEIGHT OF PACKING Many of our friends will prefer to have their seeds come by parcel post rather than by express. There is not much difference in the cost of transportation by these two methods, but if you want to the seeds to come by mail you must send postage, because it must be prepaid. We submit herewith a table showing the postage per pound to each state. This is figured in the way to be most easily understookd by our friends. The only thin to remeber is to add one pound over the actual amount of seeds you order to cover the weight of packing. For example, you live in Alabama and you order three pounds of Gradus peas by parcel post. You will add 24 cents to the price quoted in the catalogue. If you live in Illinois and want 15 lbs. of peas by parcel post, add 64 cents to the price in the catalogue.

If the postage you send is more than is necessary the surplus will be returned to you inclosed in a small envelope within the package. If you do not send postage we will take it for granted you want the goods forwarded by express or freight.

Remember that we pay the postage on garden seeds ordered by the packet, ounce, quarter pound or pound, no matter what the cost, but on larger quantities postage must be added if we are to send them by mail.

OUR POSTAGE RATE FROM DES MOINES TO ALL IOWA POINTS IS ONE CENT PER POUND.
