for the purpose of executing
BANK NOTE ENGRAVING AND PRINTING,
respectfully solicit any Orders in their line that may be agreeable to your Institution to favor them with.
It may be necessary only to say in reference to their respective qualifications, that William Woodruff was a pupil of the celebrated George Murray, of the firm of Murray, Draper, Fairman & Co., and during a term of many years, devoted this time principally to the execution of Bank Notes—of which the West received a considerable portion of his labors.
In reference to Z. H. Mason, it is only necessary to say, that the beautiful specimens of Die work with which many of the latest notes abound, are the production of that gentleman.
Believing that an establishment, located in the West, would afford conveniences to the Banking Institutions of the country—which has not hitherto existed—we have undertaken the above business, relying upon our own merits for success.
Having been engaged for the last year in making new Dies, Vignettes, &c. we now prepared to furnish Notes in a very superior style, and on short notice.
☞Bank Note Paper, of the best quality, always kept on hand.
Believing that the above information would not be unacceptable in the distribution of your Orders,
The subscribers respectfully remain
Your obedient servants,
WM. WOODRUFF,
ZELOTUS H. MASON.
