Sir: The Spectacles you mado for me suit very well, and seeru to have unproved iny sight mora than any other I have lately tried. L1TT. W. TAZEWELL. I have tried a pair of Spectacles obtained from Mr. Tobias, nud hnd them of great assistance to my sight, fnd corresponding with his description of the focus. reaotnmoud him as a skilful optician. HENRY A. WI3E. Saving bean induced by a friend to visit the estab ment of Mr. Tobias for the purpose of trying his glasses, 1 was furnished by bun with a pair slightly colored blue, which hare afforded me more relief and gratification than any 1 have ever tried. My sight, originally rerv good, was injured by writ ing and reading at night, frequently to a very late hour; but with the aid of these glasses I can study almost as late as over, and that too without the pain 1 have previously 6 u lie red. JOHN WILSON, I Ate Commissioner Gen'l Land Onice. Pee. 11, lu&x have used Mr. Tobias's Speotades for three or four months, and take great pleasure iu Kay ing that I am much pleased with them.

I was recommended to Mr. John Tobias as a skil ful optician ; snd as I have eyes of remarkable pecu liarity, 1 was gratified to find that Mr. Tobiaa seem ed to comprehend them by inspection and some slight measurement, ami he has' made me a pair of Specta cles that suits ino admirably. A. P. BUTLER. July 11, 1856. Wilmington. N. C., Jan. 17,1*54. Mr. J. Tobias. Dear Sir: I am happy to say that the Spectacles whieh I obtained froin you last wi?"k are entirely satisfactory. From an inequality 111 the visual range of my ejes, I have heretofore fooud great difficulty in getting glasses of t e proper ftwal distance. Itnti'ords me pleasure to state that.by the aid of your optometer, this difficulty has been happi ly obviated, so that the glasses you furnished niearo decidedly the best adapted to my eyes of any 1 liar* ever yet used. Very respectfully, yours, R. B. DRANE, Rector of St. James's Parish. Department of Interior, May 8,185R. From natural defects and the unequal range of my eyes, 1 have been compelled to use glasses for seve ral \ears. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glassei o?*rffet!y fitted to my eyes. Fotir months since Mr. Tobias made two pairs especially forme, which I have found to serve mo perfectly. By the use of his optometer he is enabled to adapt glasses most minutely to the??ye. I most cheerfully recommend Mr. Tobias to all having occasion to use glasses, and bear iny testimony as to his skill as an optician. HENRY E. BALDWIN, Ass't Sec'y to sign Land Warrants. P. S.
