Tomato Prize Contest 437 Hopkinson Ave Brooklyn N.Y. Feb. 4, 1924 Gentlemen: Below I am describing the Burpee's self pruning tomatoe. This plump red tomatoe of wonderous taste and beautiful color is called the "Burpee's Self-Prun- ing Tomatoe. It differs from other tomatoes both in taste + color. It is not as juicy as other tomatoes but it contains lots of flesh. The color of the skin is a bright pinkish color which attracts the eyes of people buying. As a whole I think this tomatoe will cause me to recommend it to all my friends + relatives for which reasons I have mentioned above. Yours respectfully Ann Fishman [[stamped]] FEB 7 1924 [[/stamped]]
