Reading some of my old letterhead/billhead paper items, I ran across this interesting item.

BAER BROS. WHOLESALE & RETAIL DRUGGIST/UNDER SOUTHERN HOTEL/BAKERSFIELD,CAL. This letterhead states that they are manufacturer and proprietor of KURTZ FRECKLE SALVE/IT CURES CLOUDY COMPLEXIONS! They wrote that they were enclosing a check in the amount of $80.10 due for BBL (barrel) of Whiskey. So, they purchased a barrel of whiskey from Rosenwald & Kahn in Plymouth? Wow, maybe when you applied your Kurtz Freckle Salve for your zits, you were getting a good dose of KELLOGGS NELSON COUNTY WHISKEY!
