It affords me pleasure to state that, by Ihe aid of your optometer, this diffi culty has be?n happily obviated so that the glasses you "famished me are decidedly the best adapted to my eyes of any I have ever yet used. Very respectfully, yours, K B. DRANE, Rector of St. James' Parish. Department of Interior, May 7, 1865. From natural defects and th? unequal range of my eyes, I have been compelled to use glasses for several years. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. Fcur months since Air. Touia* made two pairs especially for me, which I have found to lerve me perfectly. Bv the use of his optometer ke is enabled to adapt Glasses minutely to The eve.
