I am so glad you posted this ad Richard. I have had a suspicion for years that Jack Daniel sold his whiskey in Chattanooga, but could never prove it. The Jess Motlow letter I posted aroused by suspicion more, but your ad confirmed it. I will now have to dig a little deeper and find which Distillery's and Distributors sold his whiskey under their name. It never ends! Thanks again Richard!
