TO THE PURCHASER.

This 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 FULLNESS and CORRECTNESS. 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 Par ?" we answer
