At the conclusion of this work, and in bidding good-by to my kind patrons,
I feel great pleasure in testifying to the most excellent style in which the
letter-press has been printed by Mr. E. G. DORSEY of 12 Library street,
Philadelphia; and I think I can safely say, that never was so long continued a
work more correctly and punctually executed.
The drawings on stone, and the colouring, have been also well done, and the
former are almost all superior to the first numbers of the work, which I
considered very good. This department of the work was entrusted to Mr.
J. T. BOWEN, and his efforts to perfect the whole were ably seconded by the
talented artists and colourers in his employ.
