Register of Deeds' Office, Boston, June 15 1830. Messrs. MAYNARD & NOYES,

Gentlemen,-Having used your Ink about seven years, I have the pleasure to inform you; that it fully answered my expectations; and from the appearance of the Records in my office, I am satisfied that. it is superior to any I have ever used. It flows well, and gives a beautiful permanent black.

Yours respectfully, HENRY ALLINE. Cheshire Bank, Keene, N. H., Jan. 1, 1831.

Messrs. Maynard & Noyes.

Gentlemen,-Yours of Dec. 27, was duly received, in reply to which I briefly state; that I have used the Ink Powder manufactured by you, and no other, for more than ten years last past.

Yours respectfully, N. DANA Cashier.
