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 SEWJKG AIACItiNEs.-Aii 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 lirst 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.
