The introduction ot machinery, in place of the te

long a desideratum by the European and American
Founders, was, by American ingenuity, and a heavy
expenditure of time and money, on the part of our
senior partner, first successfully "accomplished. Ex
tensive use of the machine cast letter, has fully tested
and established its superiority in every particular,
over that cast by the old process.
