MANTLE MANUFACTORY, 242, BUTE-ROAD, CARDIFF, Nov. 29, 1871. Mr. W. DAVID,—Sir,—You ask me "my candid opinion of the Elias Howe' Machine." To that question there can be but one reply from any practical worker or iiiecliaiiie-I know the working and mechanical qualities of about 12 machines, but I must confess, that for all purposes in one machine, ease in working, accuracy of stitch and durability, it surpasses all others. All who have bought the Elias Howe; on my advice are thoroughly satisfied.-I remain, yours truly, ° W. B. BLISS. From the STANDARD, November 3rd, 1869. "CONTEST BETWEEN SEWING MACHINES.—An interesting trial of sewing machines lately took place at London, Canada, in the pre- sence of his Royal Highness Prince Arthur. The result was given in a despatch to the London house of Elias Howe, 64, Regent- street, by Mr. L. C. Mendon, the manager in Canada. It appears that that house received the first prize at the provincial Exhibition for family and manufacturing machines. The contest lasted eight hours, and the 'Howe' machine proved victorious."—Anglo- American Times. Catalogues and samples of work sent free by Post on application to W.
