rpo MR. WILLIAM STREET, A White Ant Exterminator,
(Next door to Salvation Army Hall, and close
to Central Station).
Dear Sir,-About two years ago I engaged you to rid one my houses in 0'Connell-st.s.xt, Kangaroo Point, of White Ants, and make the building proof against any future attacks from this most destructive pest. I am well pleased with the results. Work must have been done effectually, as no white ants have been seen since. In my opinion your charge was most reasonable. I recommend1 other property-holders who may be troubled with .this pest to take a leaf from my book, and engage you, as'I am sure you will extermin- ate the ants and take all risk for three years at reasonable cost. In conclusion I may state you are at perfect liberty to make use of these few lines If they are in any way a benefit to you.-I remain, yours faithfully,
