The purpose of the Mercantile Agency is to proonre and keep on record such information as will enable parties .'
whogrant Credit to decide whom it is safe to trust, and whom it is wise to avoid. It has sought to substitute for the
tardy and often insuflicient 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 time it has had the support of two-third^of tho mercantile '
comnmnity in the centres of trade,'it has demonstrated its usefulness and general rellnbUity. If it had been an unsafe
guide, if its influence had been other than beneflcial, it would 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,^add8 value to the storo of information already accumulated; while the
characters that men have made for themselves as time has passed are found faithfully daguerrotyped in our records.
There are many persons who content themselves with a Book of Ratings, and from it too hastily conclude what the
Agency can do for them. This is a great mistake. While the Reference Book Issued by ns is confidently ofl'ered to the .
Public as the most complete, accurate, and useful aid of tho kind ever published, it should be understood that we do not
by any means intend it as a substitute for this detailed information on our Office Records, which for minuteness, din-
crimination, 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, tho Reference Book bears mnch the same relation to the recorded .
details that a photograph picture of an assembly of persons bears to portraits taken singly. In the one case the personal
identity is but faintly or with difficulty traced; in the other it is a portrait with all the lineaments and peculiarities of
the subject, and it cannot be mistaken for any other person. We invito the special attention ofall parties to whom this .
Circular is sent, to the scope, character,'and reliability of this information, conscious of its intrinsic value and usefulÂ¬
ness to all who give credit. Wo aro 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.
Tub Refeiience Book is issued twice a yearâin January and Julyâand a weekly sheet of corrections sent to each
holder of the Book., Six different editions of this work are issued, viz.: The General Book, the Western, Eastern,
Southern, Canadian, an'd a Book of Cities. Pocket Editions of various States, for the use of Commercial Travellers, ore
also regularly issued. All subscribers to the Agency are entitled to the Reference Book, unless otherwise specially
arranged. Terms made known and specimen copies to bo seen at any of our offices.
