THE HONORABLE MAYOR, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, AND CHIEF OF FIRE DEPARTMENT.
Permit us to announce hereby and call your especial attention to the fact, that The Seagrave Company,of Columbus Ohio, manufacturing and dealing in firelighting apparatus and sole manufacturers of the famous Seagrave trussed frames and trussed ladders, is acting independently of, and is not identified in any manner with the recently formed trust, or combination, of fire-fighting apparatus companies. All reports to the contrary are absolutely false and misleading.
We wish to etate further that The Seagrave Company is a new organization just, incorporated, and that it succeeded on the first day of July last to the business of the old Seagrave Company, a co-partnership. It has enlarged its facilities for production and by reason of ample capital, the procurement of the best mechanical skill, and other special advantages, is prepared to supply all demands for the most approved and effective fire-fighting apparatus of every description, with the exception of steam fire engines.
The great merit of our trussed truck frames, composed of wood and steel and our trussed ladders, is already well known—they being lighter and stronger than any other frame or ladder in the market These frames and ladders are fully protected by patents.
Our testimonials are from the most experienced men in the United States and Canada, and an inspection of them will convince you that we do not make too broad a statement when we say, that the Seagrave hook and ladder trucks and hose wagons, combination chemical and hose wagons, combination chemical and hook and ladder trucks, hose reels, and other specialties are the best manufactured in the world.
We wish also to etate, that these trussed truck frames and trussed ladder, as well as our other products, can only be purchased direct from The Seagrave Company, Columbus, Ohio, or its authorized representatives, and not from the newly organized trustor combination, or any of its agents.
We solicit your patronage and will be glad to send at your request, our catalogue which fully describes and illustrates our product.
Requesting the favor ot your consideration and assuring you that we will give any inquiry you may be pleased to make, immediate attention, either by mail or by the personal call of one of our representatives, we are.
THE SEAGRAVE COMPANY;
