M!aynard. & Noyes
Black Writing Ink.

Manufacture Established 1816.

The quality of this Ink has been tested for moke than forty years. During this
time it has constantly increased in public favor and patronage, and is now the leading
article in the country. The Proprietors armex a few of many Tertimonials received
from parties who have used it for more than a quarter of a century, and whose
opportunity and qualifications for judging correctly of its merits will not be ques-

Registry of Deeds Office, Bottm. January 10, 1859.

Messrs. Maynabd & Noyes.—Gents:—I am glad that longer use of your Writing Ink enables me to
repeat the testimony given in its favor many years ago. I have used it in this Office tliirty-seven years, and
tcordt are at legible and black a* when firtt written. This rare quality for permanence renders it
invaluable for State and County Records, and all mercantile purposes where it is important that the writing
should remain legible and unchanged in color by the lapse of time.

Bowdoin Public School, Boston, January 7,1857.

Messrs. Maynard & Noyes.—Gent*.—I have used your Ink in the Writing Department of this School
the past thirty years, and take great pleasure in renewing my testimonial of its superior quality. It flows
freely from the pen ; its color is brilliant and permanent; and it-combines all the necessary and desirable
qualities of good ink.

The following extract of a letter from a well known and long-established Bookseller in
Dover, N.H., is like many others often received, and will be found to express the
opinion, ai:d correspond with the experience, of a large number in the business:

After trying various kinds of Ink, most of my customers come back to yours. I am tired of the misera-
ble compounds offered every little while, pretending to be superior to all other Inks, and will have nothing
further to do with them. I have used your Ink on my books over twenty-six years, atid my customers can
ee how it stands against time. Entries made in 1832 are as fresh as those made during this year.

Dover, N.H., October 16,1858. E. J.Lane, .

The following Testimonial from Dr. Chilton is added as a scpflement to any of his
previous tests:

From experiments instituted by me, in 1855 and 1856, and repeated within the past six months, I am ful-
ly satisfied that Haynard A Noyes' Writing Ink is entitled to the pre-eminence it has always sustained for
HoiBiUty and towanexck of color.
