WILLIAMS’ SHAVING SOAP
 
THE J.B. WILLIAMS CO., Glastonbury, Connecticut
 
Dear Sirs:
 
I enclose a picture taken by me at one of the leading hairdressers
in this city yesterday. 
While awaiting “my turn”, 
the old gentleman in the chair entered and asked
if he could be shaved. 
Being told that he could, 
he asked what soap they used, 
and said if they didn’t use WILLIAMS’ Soap
he would go elsewhere. 
He stated that he was ninety-three years old, 
and had used nothing but WILLIAMS’ Soap
for more than half of his life. 
That many years ago his face had been badly poisoned
in a shop where one of the so called
cheap soaps was used, 
and he had suffered agonies. 
He at once quit that shop
and went to one where WILLIAMS’ Soap was always used. 
Since then he had fought shy
of all hairdressers who did not use “WILLIAMS’ SOAP”
 
Very Respectfully,
J.W. URQUHART
Detroit, Michigan
 
MORAL:
Protect yourself by insisting that your barber
uses WILLIAM’S SHAVING SOAP. 
Accept no substitute from dealers, 
if you shave yourself.
Williams’ Soaps are sold all over the world. 
 
Sold by chemists, hairdressers, and perfumers
all over the world, 
or mailed to any address on receipt of price in stamps.
