The purpose of the Mercantile Agency is to procure and keep on record snch information as. will enalila parties
%vho grant Credit to decide whom It is safe to trust, ond^vhom it is wise to avoid. It has sought to substitute for th«
tardy and often insnflicient results of individual investigation, a system whereby the labor of vast numbers in gleaning
information is centred, and made accessible to all who choose to avail themselves of It. It Is not.an experiment, but
by an existence of over a quarter of a century, during which timo it has had the support of two-thirds of the mercantile
community in the centres of trade, it has demonstrated its usefulness and general reliability. If it had been an unsafe
guide, if its influence bad been other than beneficial, it would long ago have ceased from want of support. To-day It la
far more extensive, possesses better facilities, and is more complete in its arrangements than ever before. Every fact
which is gleaned; every itetn tflat is recorded, adds value to the storo of information already nccnmnlated; while tha
characters that men have made for themselves as time has passed are found faithfully daguerrotyped In onr records.
There aro many persons who content themselves with a Book of Ratings, and from it too hastily conclude what the
Agency can do for them. This isa great mistake. While the Reference Book issued by us is confidently offered to tha
Public as the most complete, accurate, and useful aid of the kind ever published. It should be understood that wa do not
by any means intend it as a substituto for tho detailed information on onr Oflice Records, whicli for minuteness, dli-
criniination, and characterization afford an insight into the peculiarities of each case, which a classification or division
into groups can never be made to reach. Indeed, the Reference Book bears much tho same relation to the recorded
details that a photograph picture of an assembly of persona bears to portraits taken singly. In the one case tho personal
identity is but faintly or with difficulty traced; in the other it is a portrait with all the lineaments and pqcnliarities of
the subject, and it cannot be mistaken for any other person. "We invite the special attention ofall parties to whom this
Circular is sent, to the scope, char.acler, and reliability of this information, conscious of its Intrinsic value and useful¬
ness to all who give credit. We are glad at all times to submit to any reasonable test as to the accuracy and fulness of
our reports, by parties who contemplate subscribing. To that end we invite a call at our oflice as below.
The Reference Book is issued twice a year—in January and July—and a weekly sheet of corrections sent to each
holder of the Book. Six different editions of this work aro issued, viz.: Tho General Book, the Western, Eastern,
Southern, Canadian, and a Book of Cities. Pocket Editions of various States, for the use of Commercial Travelleirs, ara
also regularly issued. All subscribers to the Agency ara entitled to the Reference Book, unless otherwise specially
arranged. Terms made known and specimen copies to be seen at any of our ofiices.
