Advertisement to the Scventh Edition.
It has been the primary purpose, in each improved Edition of this Work, to render it more and more plain and practical, while it should embrace every useful rule and question which might occur in the ordinary business transactions of life. To effect this object, neither time nor thoughi has been, in any wise, niggardly expended. Whatever was judged to be wanted, to characterize it as a plain, practical, and useful system, has been amply, though gradually, supplied. In the edition now presented 10 the public, part of the questions in which avoirdupois weight is concerned, has been writienfanew, or so altered as 10 allow 25 pounds only to the quarter of a hundred weight; because this practice now generally obtains in business, among merchants and traders in the United-States, and has moreover been established in Maine by legislative enactment. Considerable new malter also has been crowded into the volume, and a small portion of the old withdrawn. Errour has been diligently sought for and corrected; and, it is confidently believed, is now nowhere to be found on its pages. Considered as an Epitome, whether it be susceptible of any farther degree of improvement, may be reasonably questioned. The hope is, therefore, indulged, that, though the tongue of the yei the eye of the candid critic will see nothing in this compendium which reason and truth would long hesitate to approve.
