WESTERN BANK NOTE ENGRAVING
The subscribers having established themselves in
for the purpose of
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,
Your obedient servants,
ZELOTUS H. MASON.
