COUNTING-HOUSE CORRESPONDENT.

Banking Business.

BY THE AUTHOR OF o Webster's Chairman's Manual," "* Webster's Reciter,” « Webster's

Practical Letter-Writer," etc., etc.

Webster's Business Man treats upou every topic incidental to the experience of a Business Man. While its main design is to instruct the reader in the details of Commercial Correspondence, the subject matter of these specimen letters embraces all points of interest to the general reader.

Prominence has been given to Banking, and the relationship between bankers and their dealers, inasmuch as hundreds of thousands of persons maintaining accounts of deposit and discount, are in ignorance of the duties of bankers and the rights and privileges of dealers.

To the body of the work has been appended:

1. A Glossary of the Technicalities of Commerce, or terms employed by mercantile men at home and abroad, as a peculiar and distinctive language not familiar to the general reader.

2. A Table of Moneys in which mercantile accounts are kept in various foreign countries, information all important to dealers in imported merchan. dise; and

3. Several forms of important documents not to be found in a majority of works upon book-keeping.

This work has been submitted to the perusal of several of our most emi. nent bankers aud traders, and has invariably met with their approval.

This book contains over 200 pages, bound in boards, with a splen. did illuminated cover.

Price 50 Cents.
