Facts for the Ladies, On the 7th day of August, 1857,1 purchased one of Wheeler Wilson's Sewing Machines, which has been used from that day to this, almost incessantly. I do not recollect any day, except Sundays, in which some work has not been done upon it. By far the greater part of the time it has been run from seven seven o'clock in the morning until ten, eleven, and often, j until twelve o'clock at night. It has never cost one cent for repairs, and is to-day in as complete working order as on the day I bought it. I would not exchange it for a new machine of any other kind. Harriett A. Bellows. Seneca Falls, Nov. 22,1868.
