March 1909

Jerseyville March 27, 1909

Mr J Whitehead Walkerton. Ont.

Dear Sir, Your question under the circumstance is a hard one to answer, you not stating weather you have had any experience in {illegible} potatoes or not. I might say such a peice of ground ought to be in good fertility for potatoes, and in an average year with proper seed, and the right hand of care done in the cheapest manner possible, there ought to be a good profit. But as I dont know weather you have had any experience in the business of not, I wont advice you to raise 25 or 50 acers the first year, you'll find it requires experience to get the best results. Spraying for blight alone requires some skill, I might say my experence in the business which has been for several years, a profit could be had in the last, with prices much lower than this year. Yours Truly M. Dyment Jerseyville. Ont.
