National Geographic : 1915 Nov
Forty years ago I bought two cigars. I was delighted with them-they seemed to meet my exact ing requirements. Their rare mellowness and delicious flavor made me want more. I traced their manufacture, and foundthe exquisite leaf came from the mountainous Vuelta district in Cuba. What Happened Soon I began to order all my cigars from there. Friendsbought with me. That reduced the price. Their friends joined. Until now there are over 12,000 of us buying these unusually fine cigars at about half what they would cost if we could buy them at stores. Last year we bought over 2,000,000 cigars. Some of us wanted better cigars for what we were paying, some wanted good cigars at half what they were paying. But whatever the reason, all these men unite in approving my dis covery. None of us has ever found a ready-made cigar quite so enjoyable at anywhere near the price. The price, is so low because we buy together in large quantities, and have no dealer's profit or salesmen's salaries or expenses. The price is but $5.00 per hundred, $2.60 for fifty. That's about what they cost us. It is only fair to your complete en joyment of smoking and to your pocketbook to try these private brand J. R. W. Havanas. Actual Size First Five Free!
