ALL GOODS MAUXED IN FIGURES, AXD SO ABATEMENT, Duke-street, Cardiff, 7th March, 1849. TEAS AT WHOLESALE PRICES, CARRIAGE FREE, No. 2, BUCKLERSBURY, CHEAP SIDE. rpiIE heading of our Circular sufficiently indicates the basis of our system, viz.—that of supplying the Public with Teas and Coffees j at Wholesale 1'rices for Ready Money. This announcement may appear somewhat presuming; and the question may naturally aris6—How one party can sell at Wholesale Prices, while another requires a Retail Profit ? The answer is simply this: Our arrangements are identical with those of the largest Wholesale Establishments, and framed on the most Economical Scale. Our Warehouse, situate in a bye thoroughfare, is one of the most spacious in London, and affords the Greatest Facilities for the most Extensive Transactions, and is entirely unencumbered with tnose merciless expenses inseparable from the show of a Retail Shop, and for which indirectly the purchaser is taxed. Our business, the parent of many branches, extending throughout the United Kingdom, is of such magnitude, that our purchases are necessarily large, a;a we thus derive every advantage the market affords." Lt will, therefore, be seen that we are in a position to supply the pubile en the best and most economical terms-in fact, to supply atfirst hand by which all iniennecliate profits are saved. In quoting a partial selection of our prices, we have appended a few recommendatory remarks, and we wish particularly to be understood as holding ourselves responsible for each character so appended. We mention this, in consequence of the too frequent practice of late—particularly in the Tea Trade—of gulling the public with false alluring titles—and while some are distributing their rubbish at half a crown a pound, others adopt the ingenious appellation of best Black Tea, which, for quality, is on a par with Best Hats, 4". 9d.; Best Boots, 8s. 6d.; and Best Coats, a Guinea. It is, in point of fact, pretty candid confession that they do not keep the finer descriptions of Tea. The following List is composed from the Latest and most Favourable Quotations in the Market. BLACK TEAS. s. d. GOOD OnDiNARY COKGOU ( a very fair common Tea) «.2 8 GOO# USEFUL CONGOU (a useful Tan, decidedly cheap) .8 0 FTTK-ONG CONUOU TEA ("very good Tea for domestic use) .3 4 N V, STUONCT CONGOU, PEKOE FLAVOUK, (This is an excellent Tea, and deservedly in repute).3 8 FiNE PJ;KOF. SOVCl{()NG.4 0 (We might here refrain from publishing a higher price, for positively a higher price is unnecessary but we keep the higher prices for Connoisseurs.) Sui'JSKioit PEKOB SOUCHONG (from the Kongshing estate, rich and rare) 4 4 LVFS'ANG SoucaoNG ,o 9 (This is the acme of perfection in Tea, and bears comparison ill reputt; tu old Beeswing Port.) GEEES" TEAS. „ s. d. GOOD USEFUL GBP.BN (this will mix with Black at 2s. SùY". ,3 8 FINIS TwimtAT (this with the Black at 3s.) 3 4 YOUNG HYSON (a very good Tea, tin4 with the 3s. 4d. Black, makes an excellent mixture) 3 S FINE YOUNG HYSON (a little on the Cowslip ftavour).4 0 GUNPOWDEII TEA (very strongly recommended) .4 4 SuPEiuoit YOUNG HYSON (This is a most excellent Tea, and is really the most useful of all our Green Teas; it pos- sesses great strength and a line aromatic flavour.) 5 0 FINEST HYSON (This is a choice Tea, possessing all those rich and delicate qualities fine Hysons are celebrated for) .41 0 FINEST GC-NPOWDKK 7 0 (This is The Gunpowder, and is quits a treat: not many years since it was sold at 16s. per lb.) COFFEE. We wish to direct particular attention to Coffee, from the fact of our having, after great trouble and expense, succeeded in perfecting ha machinery for roasting, which has never before been discovered. Letters patent are already taken out for the invention, which preserves the aroma, and removes that acidity, so frequently complained of by delicate persons. s. d. (fQOD CEYLON COFFEE (Good sound Coffee) 0 10 PINS CEYLON COFFEE (a very good Coffee) .1 0 P LANTATION (recommended) 1 2 ] s FINEST JAVA COFFEE (much and deservedly in request) ,1 4 THE FINEST CUBA COFFEB (strongly recommended) .1 6 FINEST MOCHA COFFEE 1 8 It will be naturally inferred from the above that it is a favourable time to lay in a stock, as prices never were so low, nor can a greater fall reasonably be anticipated until the excessive duty of 2s. 2id. is reduced. For example, we are now selling Good sound Congou at ;)8. per lb., which, after deducting the duty, leaves but nd. to remunerate the merchants and pay all expenses of impurtatiion- a price by which the importers must be great losers. Referring to the above list we venture to solicit a continuance of that support hitherto so liberally bestowed. Having now established one of the Largest Businesses in the kingdom, we refer with pride to the progressive increase during the lust twenty years, proving that our System of BusillCSS, based on liberal principles of commercial enterprise, and holding out unprecedented advantages, is fully appreciated. Ail orders are expected to be accompanied by a remittance or Post Office order or if a reference in London be made, pay ment on receipt and approval of the goods will be sufficient. Our Terms are Cash, and we seek remuneration only by magnitude of business. Qur mottois, Small profits and quick returns." NOTE.—Teas are delivered carriage free to any part of England when the quantity ordered exceeds six pounds, but the carriage of Coffee is not paid unless accompanied by Tea. 2, Buckiersbury, Cheapside MANSELL AJ9D SO.
