Hamilton & Baker, Two Rivers, -.is. entlemen:- We this day ship to cu by freight, two boxes of Holly Wood Type, to be re- paired as per our correspondence. This type has been in its present cbndition since before the preseDt oWn- ership of the office, and therefore useless. The temta- tion to consign it to the stove has been frequent, but if you can now fix it up we shall consider ourselves fortunate. Not having at hand one of your Catalogues, we have numbered the fonts, from 1 to 17 inclusive, as per en- closed slips. Fonts 1 to 8 inclusive you may add enough to make them 4A and Sa in those having lower case. No. 9 we send only thre of, the rest all being good,and the font large enough. Simply repair these three. Font No. 10 make 4A 5a. Font No. 11, make 2A 3a. Fonts Nos. 12, 13, 14, 15, we have no use for in our business,and wish you would allow us what they are worth on the ad- ditions to our other fonts.
