At this point, Dave is 15 and a Sophomore in High School. It appears he is already thinking about his future in the Guion Advertising Agency.

Due to a holding of the mail (or some other foolish excuse) the David P. Guion & Co. letters Have not reached you as they should have. I hope that because of these wrong-doings of my friend and colleague, Mr. Farley, I shall not lose one of my most active consumers (or what have you ).
David P. Guion
