TO THE PURCHASER.

‘ī'HIs book which we now offer you is emphatically a manual for the guidance of any and every man in business transactions, in a manner prescribed by law and the usages of trade. But in addition to this, it embodies an array of practical information which makes it a most valuable reference-book to the business man; and we assume that the world is not in possession of its equal in point of FUiLNEss and connectNess. It has been prepared by a lawyer of high character and standing in the city of New York, whose professional reputation is a sufficient guaranty for its accuracy, assisted by a business-man well acquainted with the wants of the community, which this work is intended to supply.

In presenting its claims to public favor, we do not address ourselves as is usual “to the Reader,” but “to the Purchaser,” for we do not expect any man to read it through, but to use it as a reference-book, not only that his business may be done in a form that shall secure his legal rights, but also to ascertain what protection the laws of the states afford him in the prosecution of his business. When we ask the business-man to purchase it, we expect him to inquire, “WILL IT PAY 4” we answer—

IT will, PAY THE CITY WHOLESALE MERCHANT. Your customers are scattered throughout the country, and it is important for you to know the laws of the various States for the Collection of Debts, the kinds of Property Exempt from Attachment, Customhouse Regulations, Foreign Weights and Measures, Liabilities of Common Carriers, Forms of

Power of Attorney and of Revoking the same, Agreements, and many other things which the index will show.

IT wir, L PAY THE CITY RETAILER. We give Forms of Articles of Copartnership, of Leases, Assignment of

Policy of Insurance, Notes, Orders, Receipts, Value of Coins, &c.; besides important information on various subjects. -

IT will, PAY THE Country MERCHANT. We give you Forms for Bills of Sale, Contracts, Letters of Credit, Ship. ping Bills, Agreement for Sale of Personal Property, Bonds, Book-Keeping, Chattel Mortgages, and a large number of other items adapted to your daia ly wants. IT wit, I, PAY THE ATTorMEy.

Our book, emanating from one whose legal acumen will not be questioned, gives the profession the State Laws for the Collection of Debts, Laws Regulating Conveyances, the Limitation of Actions, Property Exemptions, Rates of Interest, Acknowledgments of Deeds, Statutes of Fraud, Wills, and a long array of forms for drafting business papers,

IT will, PAY THE FARMER. We give you Forms for Deeds, Mortgages, Satisfaction of Mortgages, Bills of Sale, Cultivation of Land, Sale of Animals with Warranty, Homestead and other Exemptions, Instructions for obtaining Public Lands of the

government, and numerous other forms and information which might be as important to a farmer as his plough.

IT will, PAY THE MECHANIC. Turn to the Lien Laws for the benefit of mechanics, Liabilities of Minors, Indentures for an Apprentice, Articles of Partnership, forms and rules prescribed for securing Patents, Contracts, Assignments: the index will exhibit other subjects equally useful to you.

IT will, PAY THE EMIGRANT. . We give you the Laws and Forms regulating Naturalization, Right of settling on United States Public Land, Homestead and other Property Exempt from Sale for Debts in the different States, Rates of Postage to Foreign Countries, Walue of Gold and Silver Coins, besides business forms, &c.

IT will, PAY EVERY MAN. Look at the array of subjects already mentioned, besides Forms for holding Property in Trust, Promissory Notes, Compounding with Creditors. Landlord and Tenant's Agreements, Rights of Married Women, Dowe Rights to Military Bounty Land, Interest Tables, &c., together with another item giving great interest to this work, being a well-delineated

MAP of EACH STATE IN THE UNION, AND A MAP of THE U. S.

which Maps alone are worth three times what is asked for the whole work. The special State Laws have been compiled at great labor and expense, from the latest statutes of the various States, so far as they could be reached, and will be found more complete and reliable than anything now before the public. If we have now made it plain that it will be a valuable book to you, we ask you to buy it, not simply to promote our interest, but because we give you in return that information which every man ought to have at his command.
