"Junction of Woolwich and Cardigan Streets, Guelph, Ont., Canada" "Sheet Music and Picture Post Cards at WICKS. LARGEST STOCK IN GUELPH", "DEAR....You ask me where to but a High Grade Piano or Musical Goods when in Guelph. We certainly recommend WICKS to you, next to G.B. Ryan & Co. They have the largest stock, west of Toronto, of anything from a Gramophone Needle to a Piano. Their stock is the best, and they will gladly refund money if not as represented. The Mason & Risch Piano, sold by them, is the standard of America, having the famous Steinway Scale, with the Baby Grand Separate Agraffe, to every note. They need little tuning and always retain that sweet resonant tone that you seldom hear in other Pianos after they are used little while. Hoping you are well, your friend...."
