A LETTER FBOM. One of our Satisfied Purchasers" The following is a copy of a letter received from.Mr. R. W. Wallace who was a fanner at ClareshohB and. who accompanied one of our excur- sion parties and purchased fifty acres of land from us last fall. He spent the winter visiting the fruit districts in the States and is" now settled on his land at Burton City, Arrow Lafces, S Paliwtde, Colorado, March 11, 1909. Dear--Mr, Freeman, ..j j Thig is a fruit country, a valley which is one solid orchard. These or- chards sell at per acre. The elevation is feet above sea level. They have to irrigate and water costs per acre per year. There is no reason why Arrow Lake lands should not bring as much in time-as these Jands. I am eatisfied that-we can produce as much and as fruit there, and without irrigation.' Burton Valley will be another Palisade if the people who are interested in land there do their part." SIGNED: Youra truly, B. W. WALLACE. Are, you interested in fruit growing? Are you interested in fishing? Are you interested in shooting? Are you interested in making Are you interested in boating? money? Are you interested in'securing a home with all these desirable characteris- tics. If so, join one. of pur excursions and see for yourself the country, where you can have all these things at once. "Seeing is believing."
