K First Man to Own DeSoto Six Pays High Tribute to Car The first Chrysler-built DeSoto Six to be sold at retail in the United States was purchased by W. H. Stewart, of lackson- ville, Fla. So eager was Mt. Stewart to be the first DeSoto Six owner that he made special arrangements with C. W. Matheson, DeSoto vice-president m charge of salesi weeks before the car’s announcement and even sent his son to Detroit to take delivery on his purchase. Mr, Matheson recently received a personal letter from Mr. Stewart which is interesting in that it reflects both the complete owner«hin satisfaction which characerizes DeSoto Six buyers and the intense interest which the appearance of the Chrysler-built car has aroused all over the country. new In apologizing for his delay in writing, Mr. Stewart declared he drove his DeSoto Six I TOO nvles the first week and traveled so rapidly that his mail, failing to keep up with himi had constantly to be re-addressed. “Every time I stopped on my trip,” wrote Mr. Stewart, “I had an interested and eager audience. In fact I was called upon to explain the merits and virtues of the car so repeatedly that I soon became exhausted from 1 .‘during about it. I was working myself to death,’ and being a satisfied .owner, not a salesman^ I received no salary or commissions The car was greatly admired by everyone which only made me admire it the more.” Writing of the mechanical performance of his DeSoto Six’ Mr. Stewart paid a remarkable tribute to its hill-climbing abilities. I believe the DeSoto Six is the best automobile made for climbing a long hill at a reasonable speed in high gear,” he declared. “All during my recent trip I was invariably able to stay in line and forge ahead in high when drivers all around me were changing into second and low speeds. And at no time was there the slightest indication of an overheated motor. In closing his letter^ Mr. Stewart stated that his present DeSoto Six is the third Chrysler-built car he has owned. “After two months of steady driving”, lie declared, “I still get a thrill when I get behind the wheel and push down on the gas.” Corsicana Auto Co.
