Very respectfully yours, R. R. PRANK. Rector of St. James' Parish. Having been induced bt a friend to visit the estab lishment ef Mr. Tobias for the purpose of trying his glasses I was furnished with a pair slightly oolored blue, wliioe have afforded me more relief and gratifi cation than any 1 have ever tried. My aisht, origin ally very good, was injured by writing and reeding at nifht. frequently to a very late hour: but with the ait! of these glasses I can study almost as late as jv?r. and that too without the pain I have previous ly sutJered.
