Signed in print by Huiet and declaring the products to be “A Profitable Investment!,” the handbill quotes rates for delivery “at any Depot on the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta Railroad” for different combinations of six horse power engine, cotton gin, and cotton and hay press. The initial invest¬ment, it suggests, “can be made in one season,” and Huiet noted that he had available on consignment all the implements advertised which he would sell from his stock to suit purchasers.
