Extracts from works on Emigration.
"For the purchase of Ironmongery, it is necessary to be very particular as to the description, sizes, and quality; what you want, therefore, should be procured of a person who well knows the market: if the things are not the patterns in use, they will not be even looked at, much less purchased."—Widdowson on Van Diemen's Land, page 42.
"The articles to the above patterns may be seen and bought at Messrs. Richards, Wood, and Co."—Widdowson on Van Diemen's Land, page 41.
"I bought my Ironmongery of Messrs. Richards, Wood, and Co., No. 117, Bishopsgate-street Within, and upon comparison of invoices with some of my friends in the Colony, I found I had been well used, and the quality of things furnished me was excellent; they had been for years in the Australian trade, and understand the kind of articles required in these Colonies."—Gouger's South Australia, page 126.
