EXTRACTS FROM LETTERS ADDRESSED TO THE EDITOR. From Hon. Samuel R. Betts, U. S. District Judge for the
Southern District of New York.
"I have received the Merchants' Magazine since its establishment, and regard it as one of the most valuable publications of the day. As a Register of Facts connected with Political Economy and Industrial Interests, Commercial, Agricultural, and Manufacturing, it is, in my judgment, not equalled by any work of its size and cost, in fullness and accuracy; and its collection of Cases and Doctrines in relation to Maritime Law, will be found highly useful to professional men-often furnishing American and English cases of great value, which are not to be found in any other publication. I most cheerfully recommend the work as useful in a high degree, to all professions studying the current history of the times."
From Hon. Henry Clay, Ashland, Kentucky.
"I have long known the great merits of your Magazine, the most useful and valuable of all the publications known to me, published in the United States." From the Hon. Levi Woodbury, one of the Justices of the
United States Court.
"I have heretofore read most of the numbers of the Merchants' Magazine with much satisfaction and advantage. It is exceedingly useful to the politician and scholar, as well as those engaged in commercial pursuits, to have the useful statistical information with which it abounds, collected together and presented for their perusal seasonably."
From Hon. John Macpherson Berrien, Senator of the United
"I have been, for some time past, in possession of the several volumes and numbers of the Merchants' Magazine,' and in the habit of referring to it. I can therefore unhesitatingly say, that I consider it a very valuable addition to the library of the statesman, as well as the merchant, and express, as I do cordially, the hope that its publication may be continued with increased benefit to yourself, as I feel assured it will be with advantage to the public."
From the Hon. Washington Hunt, Member of Congress from
"I am gratified to learn from your letter that your valuable Magazine continues to receive a liberal support from the public. I have long considered it one of the most useful publications in the country. Indeed it may be regarded as indispensable, not only to the statesman but to all who wish to be well-informed respecting the commerce of the world, and the rapid growth and vast importance of our own commercial interests. A work of so much interest and usefulness ought to have a place in every school district library in the United States. I wish by some such means it might be brought within the reach of every intelligent man in the country. I am convinced that it has done much to liberalize and nationalize the public mind, and I hope your circulation may continue to increase, until the patronage of the work shall be equal to its merits."
From the Hon. Edmund Burke, Commissioner of Patents.
