Office of the Home Mutual Fire and Marine, Insurance Company,
St. Louis, May 9th, 1851.

Warren’s Composition Roofirg, which has been in extensive use in this city for several years
past, has, during that time, been tested a number of times by the burning of adjoining buil-
dings, also, by the raging of fire within the buildings covered with it, and the result of our
observation has convinced us that this mode of Roofing affords a good protection against fire
This Company makes no difference in the rate of premium charged on buildings covered with
this composition and those covered with any kind of metalic roofing.
