National Cloak and Suit Co. Beware of Stores with a Name Like the "NATIONAL'S." WE want to notify our friends that in a number of towns some of our customers have been tricked into believing that they were trading with the "NATIONAL" when they went into a store which used a name similar to ours. We have no connection with these stores, so whenever you see a retail store named "The National Cloak & Suit House, "National" Sample Suit & Cloak Co.," "The National," or any name similar to ours, you may know it is not a branch store of ours. A WARNING. We will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any person, firm or corporation using a name which, because of its similarity to ours, results in misleading our patrons. We want to warn such people that our use of the word "NATIONAL" as applied to wearing apparel is protected by the United States trade-mark laws and has been upheld in the Federal Courts. We pay no reward for notification of any such stores, but our customers will be doing us a favor if they will write us at any time they see a store which they think is making use of our name. $100 Reward. We Have No Agents. SEVERAL of our customers have been swindled by men claiming to represent the National Cloak and Suit Company. These men usually have a "NATIONAL" Style Book and get our customers to give them an order and pay cash. All such people are swindlers and we want to warn you against them. We have no agents. $100 REWARD. We will pay $100 reward for information enabling us to arrest and convict any person who claims to be our agent and accepts money in our name or who solicits orders and accepts money in our name. If you hear of any such person, notify the police or other authorities and write to us at once, giving full particulars. Facts of Importance. Read Before Ordering So That Mistakes May Be Avoided. 1. Our Terms. We do a strictly cash business and full remittance should accompany each order. Nothing is sold on the instalment plan. In cases where customers do not send enough money, but the amount is at least one-third the amount of the order, it is necessary for us to send the order C.O.D. But in such cases the customer must pay all shipping charges and also the cost of sending the balance of the money to us. We cannot fill orders that are not accompanied by a remittance. 2. How to Send Money. Remit either by Post Office Money Order, Express Money Order, Bank Draft, Personal Check—made payable to National Cloak & Suit Co., Cash by Registered Mail Only. Do not send cash unless you have your letter registered. We will not be responsible for cash unless registered. Please do not send postage stamps. We will accept as cash, Liberty or Victory Bond coupons due up to July 31, 1923. 3. Be Sure that you have given us STYLE NUMBER also COLOR and SIZE wherever necessary. When ordering material to match your own goods, be sure to enclose a sample. Order only colors and sizes at prices given in this book. We do not carry merchandise in sizes, colors and prices other than those stated in our Style Book. 4. Always Sign Your Name the Same Way. It is confusing to receive letters from the same person signed sometimes "Mrs. Wm. T. Smith," again "Ella M. Smith," and again "Mrs. E. M. Smith." Be careful to use the prefix "Miss" or "Mrs." in every instance, and always sign your full name. If you change your address, while corresponding with us, please inform us promptly, mentioning both your old and new addresses. 5. Acknowledgment of Orders. All our orders are filled promptly, therefore we do not find it necessary to send any letter of acknowledgment. 6. The Prices Quoted in this Style Book apply only to orders to be shipped to any part of the United States, but we ship on request to any part of the world. On orders, however, to be shipped to Porto Rico, Virgin Islands, Hawaii, Guam, Philippine Islands and Alaska, also to Cuba and to all foreign countries, there will be an additional charge to cover the extra cost of packing, transportation charges, consular invoices, etc. NATIONAL CLOAK AND SUIT COMPANY, SEVENTH AVE., 24TH AND 25TH STS., NEW YORK CITY.
