DTJH, BARLOW & GO. R. G. mm & CO. The purpose of tho JlERCA^-TILE Aoexcy is to procure and keep on record jnch information as will enable partlea who grant Credit to decide whom it is safe to trust, and whom it is wise to avoid. It has sought to snbstitnte for the 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' theraselves of it. It is not an «.Tperiment, bat by an existence of over a qu.irter of a century, during which time it has had the support of two-tliirds of the mercantile community in the centres of trade, it has demonstrated lis usefulness and general reliability. If it had been an unsafe guide, if its influence had been other than beneficial, it wonld long ago have ceased from want of support. To-day it is far more extensive, possesses better facilities^, and is more complete in its arrangements than ever before. Every fact which is gleaned, every item that is recorded; adds value to the store of information already accumulated; while the characters that men have made for theniselves as timo has passed are found faithfully dagwerreotyped in onr records. There are many persons who content themselves with a Book of Ratings, and from it too h.istily conclude what tho Agency can do for them. Tills is a great mistake. While the Reference Book issued by us is confidently offered to tha Public as tho most complete, accnrsite, and useful aid of the kind ever published, it sliould be understood that we do not by any means intend it as a snbs'tituto for the detailed information on our Office Records, which for minuteness, dis¬ crimination, and characterization afford an insight into the peculiarities of eacli case, which a cla.ssification or division into groups can never be made to reach. Indeed, the Reference Book bears much the same relation to the recorded details that a photograpli picture of an assembly of persons bears to portraits taken singly. In tlie one case the personal identity is but faintly or with difficulty traced; in the other it is a portrait with all the lineainunts and peculiarities of the subject, and it cannot be mistaken for any other person. We invite the special attention ofall parties to whom thia Circular is sent, to the scope, char.aeter, 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 onr oflice as below. Tme Reference Book is issued twice a year—in January and July—and a weekly sheet of corrections sent to each holder of tho Book, Six different editions of this work are issued, viz.: The Genera! Book, tho Western, Eastern, Southern, Canadian, and a Book of Cities. Pocket Editions of various States, for the use of Commercial Travellers, are also regularly issued.
