Our stock of Patriotic and Colonial Souvenirs includes at one extreme in price such things as the above; at the other, such things as the Washington Mirror, $ 50, and the Washington Candlesticks, $55.

Most of these have been illustrated and described on this

page in previous issues.

Our Green Book (sent free anywhere on request) tells more about them, and about our watches, diamonds, jewels, desk-fitments, personal belongings, and tablefurnishings in gold, silver, ebony, brass, and leather.

But we have for you, can get for you, and can do for you much more than there is room to tell you about here, or even in the book. If you wish any of the above things, or anything like any of the above things, write to us. Better yet, if possible, call upon us, and we will be pleased to show you how completely we are equipped to execute your commissions for anything from a fifty-cent shoehook to a $5,000 diamond brooch. And as we do business you run no risk. The Nevius Company 33 Union Square, Decker Building, New York
