Transcript Again, E. Bendemann, Director of the Royal Academy at Dresden, says by letter January 6th, 1855: "I can, in compliance with your request to state my opinion of your Black Lead Pencils, do so with the greatest pleasure, since I shall only have to express in writing what I have often said, and still oftener thought, namely, that I decidedly prefer your Faber's Polygrade Leadpencils to all others, even to the best English, which are nearly four times the price of yours. I feel sincerely gratified at having an opportunity of thus openly thanking you. I have inwardly done so before, and have emancipated myself with a kind of pride from the use of the English." And W. von Kaulbach, Director of the Royal Academy at Munich, February 14th, 1856: "It affords me much pleasure, not only to express my thanks for your kindness in sending me samples of your manufacture, but also to state to you on this occasion that for many years past I have exclusively, and to my entire satisfaction, made use of your pencils; and that I find the samples of the different kinds forwarded to me of excellent quality, and each in itself praiseworthy." Then Professor C. F. LessinG, of Dusseldorf, March 21st, 1856: "In using pencils I have always given the preference to yours, and my opinion, formed upon previous experience, has only been confirmed by the samples you were kind enough to send me. They are in every respect to my entire satisfaction ; in fact, they leave nothing to be desired." More recently Sir Frederick Leighton (afterwards Lord Leighton) late President of the Royal Academy, in a letter from London, September 30th, 1895 : "I have no hesitation in adding my name to the list of those who have used and appreciated the pencils of your manufacture, inasmuch as I have done so from my early boyhood to the present time. I have one in my pocket at this moment." John Callcott Horsley, Treasurer of the Royal Academy, London, October 2d, 1895: "I have always entertained a high opinion of your pencils, and you have my ready permission to include my name amongst those who have derived satisfaction from their use." E. Onslow Ford, the sculptor, writing October 4th, 1895: "As far back as I can remember I have used your pencils, and I can not imagine how a better article could be desired." From recent American Testimonials we quote W. M. Chase, who under date of May 31st, 1897, writes from New York City: "I have used your pencils for a number of years and have always found them perfectly satisfactory. It is certainly a very great convenience to the artistic fraternity that you produce so great a variety of grades reaching from the very hardest to the very softest, and all of such even quality." Frederick B Opper, by letter dated Puck Art Rooms, New York City, May 29th, 1S97: "Allow me to say that an experience of some years with all kinds of lead pencils has convinced me that your pencils are unquestionably the very best that are made anvwhere."
