Edwards' annual directory to the inhabitants, institutions, incorporated companies, manufacturing establishments, business, business firms, etc., etc., in the city of St. Louis for ... /

From Missouri Democrat ,

October 21, 1863

To secure the annual publication of such a
book is to give your individual support to
one that you can depend upon to be as good
as a Directory can be made, and on no con-
dition to listen to or aid any person soliciting
for any other than the regular City Direc-
tory, as, by so doing, another such miserable
swindle as was issued a few months ago will
never be repeated. Mr. Edwards, the Pub-
lisher of the regular City Director, requests us
to cantion the public to be careful in giving their subscirptions and information to his
duly authorized agents.
