Dear Sir.

Please find enclosed a letter to be used in your Contest as being a grower of Burpee seeds I thought I'd send in my experance. I couldnt of course tell all for I could talk all day and then not be through for I have had as high as 6 a day to see my  [[underline]] prize garden [[/underline]] & flowers and I only half tried as I never used your seed before until [[underline]] Mr. Warrick. Wash Pa [[/underline]] spoke to me about it as I told him I was going to try my luck at gardening he says make it a [[underline]] Burpee Garden [[/underline]]. so I purchased some of nearly every thing The ground I have no one has ever had a garden for about 20 years & it wasnt in very good shape. so next year I am having an acre. of [[underline]] good [[/underline]] growing so I can plant more. I would of had a finer garden if I had of gotten it in sooner as it was so wet this spring you wouldnt work it. I have sweet peas on stems [[underline]] 8 - 10 in [[/underline]] The people here says its because I'm lucky but I tell them I never was lucky. Its the seeds. Their are people here have their seeds all picked out for next year as I loned them my book (over) Mrs. E.E. Carlile
