Potomac Plug Tobacco.
The beautiful and historic valley traversed by the Potomac may be regarded as the very home of the weed. Its lovely values and blue mountain slopes offer the precise soil to suit Tobacco. Its air and its memories are soothing, and one needs not bother if, when his pipe is filled, the smoker allows his thoughts to wander to the distant scenes of Lee’s famous battles, and picture the operations of the mighty armies by the Shenandoah and Potomac banks.
Since then time has rolled on - not a bitter feeling is left. The pipe of peace is smoked by all – let us call it The Potomac Pipe.
