M. Mertens, the furniture man, is agent for Vilas Bros. Pure Prepared Paints. Every gallon warranted not to peel, crack, chalk off or blister. We further agree it will wear longer and look better than white lead and linseed oil. If not equal to our guarantee we will forfeit the paint and cost of applying. Use no other. Vilas Bros. are guaranteed the best. See our floor paint card.

Signed, Vilas Bros.
