(excerpt) Introduction:

When the American people were faced with the problem of safely occupying an additional amount of leisure time, the L.A. Vitorie Company offered a solution. By developing and promoting a greatly neglected and almost forgotten American institution, we placed ourselves among the pioneers in this social movement. Our products are peers in their line, and were popular even before we improved them. Now that we have made them more attractive and added variety to a line which was dying out for want of new material, we find that people love to spend hours using them. We are proud to say that not one of our many thousand customers between Plentywood, Montana, and Skowhegan, Maine, have ever expressed dissatisfaction with our products. Many people scoffed at the idea these products would relieve a situation which confronted the citizenry of this country. Despite the ridicule of this friends, Mr. Vitorie started this movement, which has done more for farmer relief and the pleasant use of spare time than any other in America. None other has been so great or universal. We offer you this line in the hope that it will furnish you complete relief and satisfaction. Sincerely yours, The L.A. VITORIE COMPANY
