Borough of Brooklyn, New York City, May 2, 1898.
To the Editor:
—... Despite the constantly increasing cost of barley, wheat, oats, cod-liver oil, quinin and other commodities, which enter largely into the composition of the maltine preparations, we have decided to bear the tax of four cents per bottle which is to be imposed upon our output, ourselves.Although this will entail a heavy burden upon us we deem it the duty of every patriotic citizen to contribute cheerfully and without quibbling, such a share of the enormous cost of prosecuting the war as our government may find it necessary to exact. Yours faithfully,The Maltine Company.
